Skirt with Pockets and Pleats!10:37 AM
I thought a grass green skirt would be fun for Spring.
Pattern: Butterick 5249
It's a really basic skirt, no hem vent or fancy stuff just a zip back.
In my mind it's a pencil skirt, but I think it's actually more of a "straight" skirt as it's got quite a bit of room at the bottom so you don't need the back vent and can still walk around just fine.
The pockets have a pleat and are just one panel, which makes it easy.
|I wore it to church yesterday, and until now going through these photos didn't realize my hair looked like bonch all day!|
I used a linen blend which is light and cool to wear, but does wrinkle some throughout the day.
Not as wrinkle prone as actual linen, but kind of a pain. Maybe starch or something would help.
I also paired it with a wide belt. The pattern has small belt loops, which would be a good idea, but I was lazy and just plopped a wide belt on top rather than saw the smaller loops for a narrow belt.
I'm excited Spring is here...although the yard work has begun and takes into my sewing time!
