Description

I really like the Marie skirt pattern, with it’s high waist band, pleats in the front and back, and the cocoon shape. I used it previously to make these dresses.

This time, I changed the waist band to scalloped edges.
I found an useful tutorial on how to make a scalloped edge, here

I used the case of my finishing powder to draft the scallops, but basically you can use any circle objects, like a can, or a mug. I also shorten the length of the skirt.

The fabric used is a dark green corduroy I bought at Tomato in Nippori, Japan.

Material Notes

corduroy, invisible zipper

    The scallops are such a sweet touch! Did you have to use extra interfacing to keep them from flopping?
