Mr Doodle named this the add-8-inches skirt, because that’s what most people seem to do – that pattern is short!
It’s a beautiful skirt pattern though, and I love the pockets. I picked up the fabric at a vintage fair a couple of years ago. It’s a heavy cotton batik. The pattern hides the seam and pocket details, so I’m planning to make this in grey wool for the winter to show them off.
I didn’t know what Hong Kong seams were a few weeks ago, and now look! Very pleased with these, especially because I don’t like lining things. I’m not really sure when I should line clothes, except when they’re see-through. What do you think? I’m sure I’ll learn the hard way!!
I’m posing in the entrance to Mr Doodle’s office – the thumb print decal is from Circle Line Studio on etsy. Doesn’t it look great? And very easy to put up.
