While browsing around on this website I found a beatiful skirt pattern called Kasia. It looked a little bit more difficult than the other clothes I normally make and I wanted to take the challange. Also I was a little jealous when I saw the other members projects.
I wanted to give the skirt a bit more of a nautical look since I live in Hamburg and it just fits so well as you can see on the pictures. Also the skirt was a birthday present for a friend and she lives right at the baltic sea, so that fits too. The skirt didn´t quite fit at the beginning and I had to take it in here and there but in the end everything turned out just perfectly. I sewed bias tape on the pockets and made anchor buttons myself.
