I loved all the Marie creations and decided to make one myself, but when finished did not like the high waist on myself. But I really like the skirt’s pleats and elegant volume (almost baggy from the side), so I wear it with a top over it. Does anyone else have trouble walking in their Marie?

Material Notes

heavy curtain fabric, £2 per metre

    The need to have room for walking was one of my reasons for making my Marie with an unpleated back with a slit. Yours looks quite good, though.

    wow! I love the color. Your skirt looks very nice and I love the way you wear it. and.. yes, I do when I’m in hurry (but it’s kinda OK).
