Self drafted button front skirt worn with Deer & Doe’s Airelle Blouse in cotton lawn.
I made the original skirt pattern by tracing around a ready made skirt so that I could make it a lining. The original skirt had a zip at the back and the first skirt I made from the pattern had a back zip. I’m a real fan of button front skirts (all those lovely buttons!) so I adapted my pattern by eliminating the back seam and creating a front opening. I added self facings to the front.
This was my first attempt at drafting my own pattern and I’ve made it 5 times plus the version with the back zip.

This skirt is made of corduroy but I’ve made it in lots of different fabrics as shown in the photo.
We're wishing Meg a happy birthday with 50% off her favorite patterns.
