i love the bright yellow linen and i love the marie pattern so it seemed like a good marriage of the two. Except i needed to make it mine, so i shortened it, took out some fullness and the pleats in the back, and added pockets. pockets are always fun. id say im pretty happy with this considering it was my first skirt attempt!

Material Notes

cheap linen that unfortunately wrinkles very easily




Garment Type
Casual, Mod


marie pattern and my adjustments

    Very cute! You have inspired me to finish my bright orange linen Marie skirt! It’d be great if you could do a how to on those perfect pockets (I love how they are inline with the pleats!)
