Poppy Skirt and DIY Instructions!

Added Aug 16, 2014

Hello! I’ve made a couple of these so far and I just love them! The silhouette is trendy and flattering and they’re actually really easy to make.

So easy that I posted DIY instructions here on my blog. You don’t even need a pattern!

The skirt has box pleats all round with hidden inseam pockets, centre back zipper and grosgrain waistband.

The copped sweater is my own make, posted here, and the purse I decorated with stripes and I’m quite smitten with it. I posted about its transformation here.

I would love to hear your feedback and see your final product if you use my instructions!

Material Notes

Gorgeous printed cotton from I’m so taken with the colours I can’t even tell you.

I’m really hoping that the lace trim I used to finish the hem and the grosgrain ribbon in the waistband are polyester, because I just realized that I didn’t pre-treat them. Oops.
