Sidonie Hiking Skirt

Added Mar 14, 2008

by sunnyb64

Bear, Delaware, ...






Yes, I know it sounds odd, but I have friends who swear by these things when hiking! Basically, I took the Sidone pattern, eliminated the waistband and the back seam, used the top portion to make a yoke about 4" wide, and turned it into a wrap skirt. (I used the front piece twice—each side is angled and over more than half the length.) I also made a velcro tab inside and a buckled tab outside to hold it closed, and added a cargo pocket.

Material Notes

nylon, moleskin (for inside yoke), velcro, twill tape, buckle, button





Kathryn for letting me borrow her skirt to see how it stayed closed

    What a clever idea, and functional too! Nice attention to detail.

    Something for my granddaughter; she will enjoy wearing this at the shore. She lives on an island off the Rhode Island coast.
