This is a skirt I made years ago and had photographed, but never posted about and have never actually worn. I don’t remember why I made it, or even when, but I found it cleaning out my sewing studio and realized that I had taken in a the waist at some point so figured I would take some new photos to show here.

Here it is now. Sadly no pockets, and it’s linen so its going to wrinkle like crazy, but its a fun skirt. It has what is called a paper-bag waist (so it’s meant to be worn tucked in) and double inverted box pleats for fullness. I top stitched everything to add some detail and to get it to all lay flat. I found the flower applique online, it’s basically just a really big iron on patch!

And here is what it used to look like. Boy do I miss having Drew around to take photos! Using a tripod just isn’t the same.
