The waist that is. 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. I’ve got plans to add a straighter, higher yoke option to this pattern that I might have to try out next. But 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 this particular skirt with my favourite stripes, which is the main reason I designed that striped top in the first place.
