Description

Made using the Meringue skirt pattern from the Colette Sewing Handbook. I added a lining, and adjusted the scalloped hem to suit the scale of my fabric. This also meant taking out a bit of width at the hem to avoid a half-scallop at the side-seam!

See more info on my blog!

Material Notes

Blue and white polka dot cotton poplin and an unknown white fabric for the lining.

    Wow, what a great use of that fabric! Your pattern modifications and attention to the hem made for an amazing skirt! Now I wish we had that fabric in the states, too. :)

    I love how you positioned the fabric so that the scalloped edge came out just right…

    Well done!
