Skirt with Pockets and Pleats!




I thought a grass green skirt would be fun for Spring.
Version B


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!

Beautiful color. And the pockets are such a fun detail that doesn't make it hard to wear it with stuff. I have a skirt that is really ruffly on the bottom, and I have the hardest time finding stuff to wear with it!
Very cute!

I love it!!! You look great. I usually don't like to sew with patterns, but I just might have to get this pattern.

Oh is this lovely! Who cares if you don't have a fancy shmancy vent! The pockets is the detail that makes the whole skirt. Bravo! Bravo!
