More sewing for Felicity
This skirt was made with the same fabulous embroidered linen I’d used earlier for a boxy top.
It’s a lovely wrap style with box pleats front and back and enormous pockets.
Pattern: BurdaStyle 02/2015 #109B
Size: 36-44, I made a 42. It’s a bit big on Felicity, but, being a wrap style, this just means the centre front pleat overlaps a bit at the waist
I ran out of fabric and had to piece the waistband with plain white linen: Felicity’s skirt has a seam at the top of the waistband with plain white linen as the backing, and all of the back pieces and ties completely in plain white. She wrapped the ties back to the front in these photos and then wore a boxy over blouse, so you can’t see them at all.
I top stitched the pleats and flat felled the side seams. And then covered the seams up with enormous wrap around pockets. You could fit a novel in these, with room to spare!
I like this skirt and this style a lot. Perhaps I might steal it from her wardrobe. Or make myself one of my own…
