Description

This is my anthropologie knock off skirt! I pulled out my craft scissors and glue and figured out how to make these awesome pockets (for a full how-to, click here and then tweaked a straight skirt pattern, adding a fly front, waistband and funky hem shaping. Yay skirt!

More pictures and endless explanations on the fitting adjustments can be found on my blog

    Don’t talk down your achievement by calling this a knock-off ;-) Those pockets are awesome and the whole skirt looks very well made and well fitted.
