This skirt has been in the works for a month or so. I brought it along on this trip because the only thing I had left to do was to hem it and sew a button and buttonhole for the side closure. Sometimes those pesky last details are so difficult to get motivated to finish off!
This pattern is the skirt version of the dress I made in Jay McCarroll’s Purple Drop Cloth. I knew when I made that dress that the skirt was just perfect on it’s own. I love the pockets and all the lovely random pleating in this pattern. I have another version already cut and serged using nani IRO.
The fabric is a reproduction print by Nancy Gere. I love the fine lines and interesting motifs you find in many reproductions. This one was apparently originally printed in Manchester, England.
We are past the half way mark on our trip now. We’ll be coming home in just over a week. Still time for a few more adventures and a bit more sewing.
