Scalloped hem button up skirt

Enschede, Nether...






A while ago I made this button up skirt with a scalloped hem. It was the first time using a print-out pattern, but apart from the printing costs it worked well for me. Nette of the Nette Vivante blog made this wonderful pattern: The instructions given with the pattern are very useful, and were of great help during the process.

I made some alterations to the original pattern:

  • I added some length (I’m 1.78m, so I lengthened the skirt)
  • I added 4 extra scallops for extra width. I ended up cutting 2 of them away, because it turned out to be too wide
  • The original pattern is quite ‘boxy’. So I’ve sewn a little curve in it to make it more tulip-shaped.

Material Notes

I used some rust-colored cheap fabric I found at the local fabric shop. I chose to use thick yarn in a slightly contrasting color, to make it a bit more casual. Then I added buttons which I cut of a hideous vintage dress that was in my wardrobe for ages.

    Ik heb het patroon ook gedownload nadat ik jouw rok had gezien! Erg leuk! Hopelijk hangt er snel zo’n exemplaar in mijn kast!

      Leuk, veel succes! Meet de breedte en het verschil tussen de taille en de zoom even goed na, dat voorkomt – zoals bij mij het geval was- veel onnodig extra werk!
