    Great thrifting! Love the skirt, Cynthia Rowley designs such great patterns – they are pretty easy to make, but so stylish. I have two of her patterns, but I may need to get this one too!

    Love the shape! Was the pattern easy to follow? The detail on the waistband is lovely.

      It was very simple acutally. I changed the waist a bit. It calls for a bias binding but I just sewed them right sides together instead.
