Helena´s colour

I´m so happy with my new project!!!
I downloaded Helena Skirt pattern and I changed it!! It´s so versatil pattern.
First, I cut the waistband shorter than the pattern, then I made different pleats in the back and in the front. Back´s pleats are deeper and longer and I stiched them much.
But the most difficult thing were buttonholes… the next time I´ll sew them better, sure!!!

Material Notes

I bought this fabric in Amsterdam´s Albert Cuypmarket. Amazing place!!! And very cheap fabrics!!!
