Description

At the last minute, I decided that Amy Barickman’s Design Challenge was the perfect motivation to sew up a quick project that wasn’t a dress!

With only a week left to go, the quickest option was the downloadable patterns. Of the four choices, I love the blouse and skirt patterns, and, in the end, decided on the skirt. At some point I will have to make the blouse pattern up to match my skirt!

It is a little hard to tell from the photos, but this fabric is embroidered with little bows. I love it!

I knew I wanted contrasting pockets, so I picked up a small amount of green and white seersucker. After digging around my quilting cotton stash, I found a yellow for my pockets.

The most fun part of the project was making the pockets. I had quite a few ideas, and really do like the square pocket look, but with my fabric choice, I though a rounded pocket was more appropriate – especially because I wanted to add buttons and bows to match back to the pink fabric.

This really was a fun project, and has made me realize I should not be afraid of trying something new. And I am sure I will be making more of these skirts!

More pictures and information on my construction process may be found over at my blog, Lilacs & Lace.
