Navy linen skirt – Vogue 1247

As promised back here, here is the navy linen skirt that is part of my “Starting from Scratch Wardrobe”.

This skirt was cut out, along with the shirtmaker and cardigan for the sewing weekend I attended back in May.  Both the shirtmaker and the skirt are from a gorgeous slate blue linen purchased from Tessuti in 2013.

One of the things I like to look out for during craft shows are fat quarters that can be used for pockets and this one was perfect for this skirt.

I did manage to get the skirt sewn up to hemming during the sewing weekend, and it has been hanging around for a few months now waiting to be finished.

Oops I forgot to pull my top down!

The skirt is lined as well as using the twill tape for the waistband.

This is the third time I have used this pattern, the others are here and here and I imagine there will be a few more as it doesn’t take too much fabric and the pattern pieces easily fit on those odd scraps left over from other garments.

    I also love this skirt and the fact that it can be made from a small amount of fabric. I have never thought of fat quarters for pocket linings – brilliant!
