I realize now that I haven’t yet posted the two Liberty dresses that I made from this Vogue 8901 pattern. You’ll see them both before Me Made May is over. They are so pretty and I love the skirt so much that when I wanted to make a Midi Skirt, I decided to steal the skirt from this dress pattern and add my own waistband.

It worked perfectly. The skirt has a hundred small pleats (or just lots of them) and I like the way it adds fullness without making the skirt look poufy. This is a new length for me. I’ve been enjoying having a skirt that hits just below the knee.

I’m wearing it with my Camber Set Tee and here you can see the shortened length. I cropped this tee from the original length I made it, so that it would work better with skirts and it’s just right. It hits just below the waistband.

When I look through all my Liberty clothing, I’m realizing this is my first Liberty skirt. I have so many tops and dresses. I’m going to have to work on more Liberty skirts this summer. And I might need a pair of Liberty pants too.
