Thank you all so much for the fabulous, positive comments about Veronica! This is one cool skirt pattern, and this is one cool skirt! So cool, we needed another. 😉
The fabric is from my stash, a John Kaldor print on stretch cotton sateen. I’d bought it for trousers for myself about 3-4 years ago, but then Daughter no1 bagged it for something for her. We never got round to choosing exactly what to make with it, it’s always tricky cutting into nice fabric when you’re not 100% sure of what you’re wanting. This week I finally made her some trousers from a Burdastyle mag (which she loves!), and had enough left over for something else. This skirt, for example!
I didn’t match any patterns, with only 1m left over there was no way of doing it, besides, I kinda like the way the pattern gets chopped up & re-assembled. It’s a bit subversive, isn’t it?
I hope you’re all getting ready for the tutorial on how to make your own version of this, and of Barbara. I have been working on 1/4 scale versions of the pattern, hopefully next week it will all be ready to post. I leave you with one final look at the funky pockets & buttons.
