Summer Skirt

This skirt was cut out before I headed to the US and seeing I was close to finishing Green Gable, I thought it best to finish the skirt as well so they could be worn together when we have our first warm day later this year.

I have made view A of this skirt (2nd from the top on the left) once before in a Japanese cotton and just love how girlie and cool it feels.

This time I used a cotton voile from Spotlight.

The skirt has the pleats stitched down and it is fully lined with a white voile using an A-line skirt pattern as this gives me enough room to walk without adding a lot of volume around my legs.

The only change I made to the pattern was to take 1cm of each side seam from the waist to the hip line, a very small adjustment, however the skirt now sits where I want it to.

Now to keep my eye open for fabrics for tops to go with this skirt.

  1. Very nice skirt and knitted top. That chartreuse colour is so great for you! I can see how the skirt could be worn with different tops though. How would the skirt be with tights, knee length boots a thinner top and a cardigan or jacket for cooler weather?

    Hi SharonYour skirt looks great. I love the colours, the pattern and the style. It works really well with your knitted top and I am sure it will go with lots more. Well done.Lee-Anne


  3. That is very pretty and looks wonderful with your gorgeous knitting. Surely it is hot enough at lunch time to wear this now – maybe with tights?If it were mine I could not bear to leave it in the wardrobe all autumn.
