Shirty skirt

Added Oct 9, 2011

Made using Vogue 1248, of white cotton voile and the same fabric for lining. The long waist sashes have shirt cuffs on the ends, a detail that I love! Plus the pockets on this pattern are HUGE; must be the biggest in known history… but they beautifully enhance the general over-pouffiness of this skirt. I just feel so darn feminine in this skirt!
I will be wearing this one to death this summer, for sure
I have a review of this pattern on my blog here

Material Notes

white cotton voile, invisible zip closure, decorative snaps on the “shirt cuffs”




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Classic, Romantic

    Nice job! Their catalog photo put me off, but yours makes me want to sew one.

    This is so perfect. From the mondo pockets to the cuffs to the fabric choice, this skirt is really tempting me to make one of my own!
