Purple Beignet Skirt

I made this skirt using another of the Colette patterns (the Beignet skirt) and once again it was super easy to use and came together without a hitch. I used a purple cotton drill and white sunsilk anti static lining. It is really hard to get a proper picture of the shade of purple. It always looks more blue in photos than it is in real life. I finished this project on Friday night and wore it twice over the weekend out for dinner then to a christening. It is so comfy to wear and I will definately be making another in black for work.

Material Notes

cotton drill, sunsilk anti static lining.

    Wow that looks so amazing and suits your body shape gorgeously!!! I have been looking at a skirt like that in a mag and just dreaming about making it.

    I love this and I love Colette Patterns too! I made the Beignet skirt too, in red but missed out the lining. I saw your dress on the Colette blog, that looked really well made too. Which other three did you buy?

      Thank you! I ordered Macaron and Parfait. I wanted to get them when I order Beignet and Eclair but didn’t have enough money. I also got Ceylon from her new collection. It is gorgeous! I can’t wait to make them.

      I have my eye firmly on the Macaron and Ceylon too! Can’t wait to see your version! Happy sewing!
