just can’t get enough

I know I have been a little loopy for the skirts lately, but hey, it’s one way to get through my stash, right? I decided to try my hand at that skirt from the Japanese skirt book (Skirt a la Carte) I bought recently:

You can’t really tell from the photo, but the pockets have little tucks in them. I had some issues with the waistband, but since I never tuck anything in, nobody will be able to see the poor workmanship. I wonder which skirt I should make next?

    You make such pretty things, and it seems like you have new things every day! You must have big closets! 🙂 I can see the little tucks in the pockets and I love the a-line shape of the skirt. Sweet!

    A johnny-come-lately thank you for the bag pattern, by the way–I just whipped one out and can’t wait to make more! I’ll have to try a pillowcase next…

    That looks fab! It has a vintage apron feel to it… what makes you think you can’t handle embellishements?!?

  18. Sarah says:

    The skirt looks fantastic!
    I copied the idea from your blog and made a version of the skirt from some vintage fabric. If you get a chance take a look. I didn’t have enough material for 2 pockets though! Anyway, thanks for a great website!

    I am a huge fan of skirts, and this one is spectacular!

    I can’t get over how I’ve been agonzing for weeks over picking out just the right pattern and just the right fabric for my first attempt at a skirt (well, my first attempt at any clothing), and getting all stressed that I’ll screw something up and it will look obviously homemade, while you just say, “I think I’ll whip up a skirt” and you do. And it looks fabulous.

    Love it! I love skirts, especially in the summer. The pockets are great, I have to remember those for the next skirt I make.

  22. melissa says:

    I love the pintucked pockets on the skirt! Very nice detail. The knit t-shirt looks great on you too. I feel like I haven’t been to your site in a while with all your new posts. I am so jealous of the vintage Herman Miller fabrics. Very mod and cool.

  23. love those red mary janes with your skirt!! 🙂 too cute.

  24. Loving the skirt! You are a crafting machine!
