And the skirt making continues…
I bought this fabric a while ago. Its actually Christmas quilting fabric, shhh! I had it all lined up for a different style of skirt, and then it just developed as I made it. I had seen pictures of scalloped skirts on Pinterest and thought they looked nice. When I saw that the pattern on the fabric was curved, it reminded me of the said skirts and so away I went. Sorry to say I didnt photograph how I did it, and I didnt follow anyones tutorial. But if you search for a tutorial, Im sure you will find one
This time I added an external pocket, just for the contrasting look, with the underneath of the scallops.
All in all, I really like the skirt. The only thing I would change is the size of it around my body. I used the formula of 1.5 x largest hip measurement. It is a bit too much for my liking and I think next time I make a similar skirt, I will aim for about a 1.2 -1.3 x largest hip measurement.
Now, summer days, come at me! (Except the bad humidity, you can just tone it down a little..)
