Oh, I tried myself on pattern making for a garment for the very first time. I was inspired by Megan Nielsen’s tutorial for a scalloped hem skirt with elastic waistband. But because I wanted a scalloped skirt with button up front and pockets for a long time already, I had to try it myself. :)
I am so glad that I had the heart to draft this skirt pattern! It just turned out as I imagined and I couldn’t stop giggling after trying it on because I was so happy.
So this is the version I was thinking of: a middle waisted and light ruffled straight skirt with button up front, side pockets and scalloped hem.
Now I want to share to give all of you something back (in case you are interested!). I am so glad to be part of this wonderful community. You can either download instructions and pattern here on BurdaStyle or come visit me on my blog and get it over there nettevivante
