Scallop Button Up Skirt

Added May 7, 2011

Nordrhein Westfa...






Oh, I tried myself on pattern making for a garment for the very first time. I was inspired by Megan Nielsen’s tutorial for a scalloped hem skirt with elastic waistband. But because I wanted a scalloped skirt with button up front and pockets for a long time already, I had to try it myself. :)

I am so glad that I had the heart to draft this skirt pattern! It just turned out as I imagined and I couldn’t stop giggling after trying it on because I was so happy.
So this is the version I was thinking of: a middle waisted and light ruffled straight skirt with button up front, side pockets and scalloped hem.

Now I want to share to give all of you something back (in case you are interested!). I am so glad to be part of this wonderful community. You can either download instructions and pattern here on BurdaStyle or come visit me on my blog and get it over there nettevivante

    This is one of the cutest skirts I’ve ever seen! I’m off to find some fabric for it right now. Thank you SO MUCH for having the guts to draft this. I’ve been wanting something like the megan neilson jewel sea skirt and the scalloped edge and this is it! Bookmarking your blog for later. I seriously am the happiest girl in the world right now! :D x

    Nette, this is another cute pattern of yours. It looks absolutely lovely on you. I love how you pair it with the strippy shirt and the red heart necklace. I am going to download this and try it! Thanks a bunch! <3

    The scallops really make this skirt….you could even wear some contrast leggings or a peek-a-boo slip underneath. It’s quite versatile, I think!

    Wonderful job!!! What a great skirt and thank you for sharing your pattern with all of us. I can’t wait to try to make this skirt. I am not too sure about the scallops but I will give it a go, may make it for my daughter as it seems a little young for me. But the basic skirt pattern is one that I am sure I will make for myself with a regular hem line. Keep up the great sewing!!!
