My Version of the Marie skirt , I made it a good bit shorter, Widened the waistband a little and added the pockets, inspired by sunnie’s lovely version.

I’ve really enjoyed making and wearing this one!!

Material Notes

Light blue cotton printed with a beautiful pattern in grey, I fell in love with it at first sight!

Grey suiting for the waistband and pockets.

Sunnie for the pockets inspiration.

    You’ve lined up the fabric really well (so symmetrical!). And the fabric choice is fabulous!

    Nice! Good choice of fabric. I like the shape of the pockets, they work well with the silouhette of the skirt. Good Job.
