Drop it for the skirt

Can I call this a drop waist skirt? Well, if I can, it’s so totally me! I made my first version of this skirt up a few weeks ago and I’ve been loving it to pieces ever since. This time, I jazzed the pattern up a little by adding a couple of cute front pockets. I also found a way to use up some completely and utterly amazing fabric scraps I had lying around.

The way the skirt hugs the hips, and the addition of the front panels makes this skirt so much more flattering than a basic, gathered skirt. Here are some shots with a simple white top, which show the details of the skirt more clearly.

In real life, I’ll be wearing it with my favourite stripes, which is the main reason I designed that top in the first place.

  1. I’m a bit mixed up with whether I’ve put a comment about this skirt. But gosh I love it and can’t wait for you to release this pattern.

    1. Thanks Kristy! My blog’s been confusing me (and probably everybody else) over the past week as I moved it over to wordpress. So much pain, but thankful I found an amazing computer guy to do it right for me in the end. The skirt is next on my agenda 😉

    2. Haha, I’m totally mixed up with what posts have been popping up on my confused blog all week AND working out how to reply to people or even remember to comment – I’ll get used to this new site! Thankfully it finally appears sorted now. And with that dress pattern out of my hands, I can start to think about the skirt again 😉

  2. This skirt..I am going to buy this pattern as soon as it is available. I just love it!

    ..and congrats on your first PDF pattern! If only I had a girl. I’ve got twin boys. 😉
