VintageModern Design Challenge - One Seam Skirt to Hip Pocke...

This entry is based on the One Seam Skirt ePattern provided in Option 3 by Indigo Junction. Sizing this pattern for a child was easy since it is all based on the waist measurement.

There are seven pleats in this version of the skirt. Three are centered in the front and four are centered in the back The sides of the skirt are without pleats so that bound hip pockets can lay flat. The shaped pockets and binding (on the pockets and waist) were added to give a quirky vintage accent to the skirt. Also, the skirt length is shorter to appeal to today’s youthful spirit.

Material Notes

I used stretch denim and bias binding.

    Thank you to everyone who has left me a comment, favorited this project or voted for it in the Vintage Modern Design Challenge. The feed back puts a smile on my face and makes my inner Lucy Riccardo give my inner Ethel Murtz a high five.

    I like it. The bias binding on the pockets is a great touch.

      Thank you. I was thinking of making one for me out of mens suiting and using piping or velvet 1/4 inch ribbon instead of binding.
