Birthday fabric bought in March = skirt cut out and basted in April = procrastinate til it’s actually FALL to make your fall pheasant skirt :P
I love Japanese culture, so when I was invited fabric shopping by my bf’s mom for a birthday gift, I knew this pheasant-print quilter’s cotton was destined for a fall/winter skirt! Cuz pheasants are a fall motif, and all that.
The front is Marie, the waistband is modified from Marie’s (it’s one long piece, instead of a front and back), and the back is from a pencil skirt pattern circa 1992. The whole kaboodle is shortened by about 4 inches and the hem is my second-ever blind hem. I had some fitting issues, because it seems the top of the waistband on BOTH skirts was designed to fall at the waist, and I wanted the bottom of the waistband to fall at the waist. I had to take almost two inches out because of the extreme difference between my waist and hip measurements.
Quilters cotton, very thick and soft.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
