My Pink Sidonie

Added Sep 8, 2009

Brooklyn, New Yo...






My first attempt to make and actually wear a piece of clothing….I loved the pleats on the Sidonie Variation 2. I’m glad I did and think it turned out well!
I made the pleats half the recommended size from the pattern; also, I did not make the hem at the length suggested, I left it a bit longer.

Material Notes

Pink Linen self, non-static polyester liner, 8in zipper

    Very cute! I want to make this skirt so much, you reminded me, I just have to wait a bit longer for summer to come back. Great job and a wonderful colour. Your variations are great, well done, I hope you wear it often, it looks great on you :)
