Miss Marple Skirt
Added Mar 29, 2011
This project was inspired by a skirt worn briefly by the character Marina Gregg (Lindsay Duncan) in one of the new episodes of Miss Marple. The skirt was full, with vertical stripes and a band of horizontal stripes along the bottom. Unfortunately I could not find a picture of it.
I used the waistband from the Jenny pattern. but cut the fabric out thinner. My skirt has in-seam pockets and is made from a bedsheet purchased from the op-shop a few years ago. The zipper is also from the op-shop.
I wanted the horizontal band along the hemline to be quite wide, but it did not look balanced that way. I may try this again with thinner stripes.
I also watched Miss Marple while sewing this skirt…it has great clothes and once you have seen them a few times you don’t get too distracted while sewing!
