The original versions of the Sidonie skirt are not really my style. So I want to make something different.
I lower the waistband about 15 cm, seam allowence included. And I add in seam pockets (I followed nayantaras how to). I also lenghtened it with a “waving” stripe.
Instead only to sew lining in, I decide to make it reversible. So I use only the pattern for the front and back piece, and not those for the lining.
I used elastic fabrics, so I don´t need a zipper.
I will upload a how to for it.
It was really fun to sew, cause I can´t imagine at the beginning how it will looked at the end. I´m happy with the result!
Two skirts in one, great for traveling or when you accidentally spill something on it ;P!
