This skirt was made last summer and I hadn’t gotten around to posting it…I wonder why that happens?? For a while last year I was in love with the skirts and dresses that I had seen at Anthropologie. You know..the ones with the scenic prints on them. Serious love. So when I found this fabric, I snapped it up because I also love anything nautical, although this may be a bit too literal, I love it just the same.
I made this skirt in the same fashion that I made this red skirt.. I really should write a post on the process. It is like a drindl skirt except that I pleat it on my dress form instead of gathering it. Very easy and can be done with just a meter of fabric!
I know that this skirt is not for everyone but it is most definitely me. Do you have me mades that you just adore despite what others may think?
I love your skirt. The fabric is really pretty:)
That fabric is awesome, not too literal at all.
I love it! I think the fabric is great, and I really like the style. And I am undertaking a ridiculous stash busting pledge, with your post the other day pushing me over the edge, ha. I'll be blogging about it (hopefully) tomorrow.
Beautiful! I totally love the scenery and it looks right at home there. I'm sure your work is much better than Anthropology, they underwhelm me up close.
Thanks Kelly! I know I will be so happy with myself for accomplishing this stash busting challenge…I'm trying to treat my stash like it's my own personal shop. But boy is it hard when I see new beautiful fabrics everywhere online!!! We can cheer each other on through the process! Gooooooo Kelly!!! (insert jump and pom pom shake here!)
It's a lovely skirt, the style really suits you. Gorgeous location too!
This is gorgeous! I love the fabric and the colours are gorgeous too. I've still never tried making a Dirndl skirt and I love how you've substituted the gathers for pleats, it gives it a great shape.
I just love this skirt Margot and you are very cool to do your 'photo shoot' down at the beach in it! What is the pattern? It is such a lovely style.
Thanks Kristy! I will do a tutorial on this skirt in the near future (hopefully).
Love it! And you chose the perfect background to take photos of it. Margo, everything YOU wear looks fantastic!Enjoy your weekend!
