Stripey Marie Skirt

Added Aug 26, 2008

Oakland, Califor...






I adjusted the pattern a little to fit me since I’m short and between size 36 and 38. Took off about 2 inches (I’m 5’2"), but otherwise I left the pattern alone.

Material Notes

Stripey polyester upholstery fabric

    That is one funky skirty lady and I love it! The stripes look fab and you did an awesome job lining them up so nicely too :)

    Hello, i love the very bold stripes, which are nicely broken up with the pleats. Well done!

    I really like your skirt, the stripes and the pleats goes very good together.

    Great Marie, and the stripes look great!

    I love this pattern, but I’m quite small too (a shade over 5ft). I’ve tried making it a couple of times, but it’s never looked quite right and I ended up feeling swamped by it. Now I know it can look good on someone my size, I shall try going back to it!

    shouldn’t be too hard for a beginner. just read through the instructions a few times before you get started and remember that because of the pleats, the widest part of the pattern is the top of the skirt.
