This was actually the first skirt I started on but finished after the Big flowers version because I knew it’d take some time to acurately add the bias tape I had cut out from the fabric I’d used for the waistband. And indeed it did! Definitely worth the effort, though. I love how neat it looks (if you don’t look too much here and there, hehe).
The skirt is 3cm longer than the pattern and and 2cm longer than the other version I made. They look pretty different in style despite being based on the same pattern and the different length adds to that.
