When I was a student at FIDM, we would often get fabric for a class that we never ended up using. One of these was a simple blue and white striped fabric that we were supposed to use to learn about matching up stripes in seams, but never did.
SO….I decided to do it myself. I made a simple 3 paneled skirt with in-seam pockets and learned that if you go slow and are careful, it really isn’t that hard to get striped to line up!
Here are the results, hope you enjoy!

How amazing is your skirt with the petticoat! It looks so 1950’s sailor, the last photo is my favorite 🙂
Oh wow, it’s so simple yet so beautiful, feminine and elegant. You really picked the right fabric, the colour and stripe are perfect.
