Summer wardrobe #2

I have been sewing away since Saturday afternoon on this skirt. It is the intermediate version of the other one I made from Sew Serendipity.

This bright number has the addition of pockets which are the right way round, frilled edges on the pockets and a degree of pattern jiggery pokery to get the swirl pattern in the centre of the skirt.

The waistline on this A-line skirt is slightly dropped and I thought I wouldn't like it but it feels a comfortable place for it to sit.

My top-stitching is improving and gives it a really neat finish.
We are going away on holiday next week so this can go on the holiday pile - with a red t-shirt I think. Jo x


  1. Bravo for the right-way pockets and another happily finished project, Jo!
    By the way, I think your use of the motif on the back of your gray cardi is very clever...pretty, too!
    (Last night I finished another row on the shawl I am crocheting...progress:-)

  2. Oh that's lovely! And it really suits you too, well done! I am in awe of sewists! xx

  3. Very pretty fabrics Jo and you've organized them so nicely - it will look even lovelier with a red colour atop. Gosh you are so busy always - well done on yet another successfully finished project and do enjoy your holiday. Joy xx

  4. Very cute! and will be a great little holiday skirt too. I like it with the black Tshirt, like you have worn it here too :)
