Button Up Retro Skirt

Added Jul 20, 2011

This is an easy project, simple high waisted retro A-line skirt with 7 buttons. I got this pattern from an old 70’s book. It’s called a DOT pattern where you measure your self and based on that draw a pattern using dots from a little sketch. This is my second version of this skirt, it’s so comfortable and easy project that I plan to make a few more of these…

Material Notes

Linen fabric 80 cm, flowery buttons, white bias tape for seams

      Thank you, it really goes with anything, whether it’s a 3/4 sleeve cardigan, a blouse or a shirt. :)

    The linen colour is gorgeous, but i’m especially taken with the fabric texture on your top – It’s very pretty!

      Thank you, I got this vintage linen as a present. I made the top about four years ago, it’s one of the first things I made. Fabric is some kind of a stretch knit, very comfortable. :)
