A lovely flowing skirt made with material I bought from Value Village. Button waist set assymmetrically, two darts on waistband.
The polka dot is some synthetic, the pinky lavender feels like cotton. The colour on this photo is really distorted— the polka dot is actually a dark dark blue (almost black).
Modified from the Voluminous Skirt “pattern”. I laugh because it leaves SO much room to figure things out. Like the waistband. I would recommend leaving some waistband so that the buttons flap will not have any skirt attached to it. I had some troubles with the fabric puckering.
