My sister gave me this fabric 2 years ago for my birthday and I finally decided to make it into a summer skirt.
The pattern is a Knip Mode pattern – August 2012, model 13 – which was very easy to follow.
The skirt has 6 pleats front and back.
I topstiched the seam, the pockets and the waistband with double thread to make them more prominent.
100% (medium weight) cotton, design: Laura Ashley
