A very full, high-waisted, button-through skirt. This is my first ever sewing project and I’m pretty thrilled with how it came out. I made the pattern based on a few ideas I had and tutorials I found. It’s not quite perfect, but fine for a first attempt.

Material Notes

1.5 yards grey wool/polyester fabric
7 grey plastic buttons

    This is really cute! It’s simple and classic, and the buttons down the front are the perfect detail to set it apart.
