linen midi skirt

grey linen midi skirtIt’s been a long while since I’ve made myself something new to wear, and I figured I should get all my personal sewing out of the way before the rush of christmas-present-crafting. I’ve wanted a mid-calf-length skirt for a couple of years, so I’m glad to be able to cross this one off the docket. I used this pattern and a beautiful, grey linen. Apart from reducing the flare of the skirt a bit, I followed the pattern exactly. Like I do with many patterns, I totally overestimated the pocket size. This seems like the type of skirt that could conceal some luxuriously deep pockets, but sadly, they’re just big enough to put a hand in. If I use this pattern again, you can bet I’m drafting a new pocket piece.
