Brooklyn, New Yo...
You’ve got to have some tough love to survive the hot summers in NYC. To beat the rising summer heat, I whipped up this flouncy skirt made from a light printed cotton. It took about two hours to make.
I have to wear it with a tight-fitting shirt, or it makes me look to hippy (it’s not a very slimming skirt..but it’s comfortable!).
The fabric has a pretty white-and-red selvedge, so I used that for the bottom of the skirt and didn’t hem it. I inserted pockets and used three snaps for the closure. I left the pocket nearest the snaps loose inside the skirt (so it’s not sewn to the waistband) so that I can slip the skirt over my head and then tighten it back up when I snap it closed.
I have a little diagram of how I made it on my blog Daughter Fish

She modified this coat wonderfully by adding length and changing the pockets and collar
