Lest you think I whipped this up in a day, I actually finished it before the previous entry. I'm planning to post all the items I've sewn in the past few months.
Anyway, here is the front view:
Here's the back:
Here's a picture of the pocket band:
This skirt was super easy to make. I think I might have shortened the pattern a little in length. I like my skirts to hit right at the knee. The pattern had the pocket bands in the same fabric as the skirt. But I thought why go to all that trouble for a detail nobody will notice? So I made them green to match the lower band. Both fabrics are cotton and I didn't line it. I've seen this style of skirt all over the place lately. It might not be in fashion in a year or two, but hey, a girl's gotta keep up with a few fads, right? Here's the line drawing just for giggles:
I made view A and ironed in some pleats. The fabric of the lower band is thicker then the skirt and created a balloon effect without the pleats. I'm very happy with the end result.
