Phew I have finally ventured out of my den! It's been so hot lately I avoided going out in the day but I did have a little work this afternoon so I took the opportunity to wear my latest skirt (can you tell I'm obsessed?!):
Aww, I love it to bits! The pattern is a tulip skirt from the August 2010 French issue of BWOF, I had to alter it very little: the size is a compromise between 36 and 38, I made the back in two pieces so that I could put the zipper there -I cannot properly sew a curved zipper- I narrowed the gathered skirt by about 2" and shortened it by 3/4". I used repro feedsack fabric bought there, red poplin for the pockets and black cotton for the facing.
