Geometric Mayhem A-Line Skirt

How about this for a print? I bought the fabric at Spotlight in New Zealand while I was visiting my parents for Christmas – this was the skirt I pictured it becoming the moment I saw the print. It’s a stretch cotton sateen. Pattern matching would have been ridiculous with the craziness of the print, so I didn’t bother. Judge me, why don’t you :-P

I drafted the skirt from the perfect a-line skirt I have in my closet – it’s a really simple little thing, but there’s something indescribable about it that makes it fit me perfectly. So I traced it, and made one of my own :-)

It would’ve taken no time at all, except I took the time to draft a real, re-usable pattern for it so that I can make it again and again. If I ever figure out how to digitize these things, I could even put it up on here, although I’m sure there’s a basic a-line skirt somewhere around already.

It’s project number 12 in my 52 Weeks of Sewing project. I’m so excited to still be caught up as the year goes on!

    Great skirt Julia, and you chose the perfect style to sew it in. The fabric only deserves simplicity.
