Here’s my Green Marie and I LOVE her! I definitely get some funny looks at work (it’s so conservative there), but I don’t care!
Instead of doing the interfacing and all that, I just sewed one of the waistbands to the pleated skirt, doubled it over and tacked it to the wrong side. Yea, I’m totally lazy.
It’s a little narrow at the hemline so there’s definitely no running or playing in this skirt, but I kinda like that. (no running and playing makes me feel like a lady, which is nice… just once in a while)
some kind of green polyester or cotton or something.
burdastyle for the pattern, the fabric store that went out of business that practically gave me the fabric, and my baby for sleeping through the sounds of my sewing machine and my swears.
