This skirt was cut out before I headed to the US and seeing I was close to finishing Green Gable, I thought it best to finish the skirt as well so they could be worn together when we have our first warm day later this year.
I have made view A of this skirt (2nd from the top on the left) once before in a Japanese cotton and just love how girlie and cool it feels.
This time I used a cotton voile from Spotlight.
The skirt has the pleats stitched down and it is fully lined with a white voile using an A-line skirt pattern as this gives me enough room to walk without adding a lot of volume around my legs.
The only change I made to the pattern was to take 1cm of each side seam from the waist to the hip line, a very small adjustment, however the skirt now sits where I want it to.
Now to keep my eye open for fabrics for tops to go with this skirt.
