Skirts Galore

Tabatha's Drawstring Lined Skirt

I started and completed three skirts this weekend, so happy to have expanded my wardrobe (and back in the sewing mojo)!

For this first skirt, I used Cecillia Orange from the line Crazy Love by Jennifer Paganelli, adore the fabric, love oange and pink together! I wore it today with a white t-shirt and grey sweater (not so warm today), very comfortable. The fabric is too transparent on it’s own so I lined it with white Kona cotton, I love the feel, it’s sturdy yet soft.

This skirt isn’t lined, I hope it’s not too seethrough! I considered adding more embroidery to it but less is more in this particular case, I think.

However, with this next linen skirt, I plan to use as embroidery practice, perhaps a sampler skirt!

These skirts are so flexible and easy to wear, I’m considering making them for my Etsy shop. Visit my Flickr stream to see larger photos.
