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.

      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 😉

      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 😉
