I thought this pattern would be a perfect match for this fabric when I saw Handmade Jane’s post. This is more fabric from deep stash, a Japanese textured cotton, quite heavy, almost feels like a barkcloth.
The pattern is Simplicity 2451 described, not very effusively on the packet, as a ‘skirt in 2 lengths.’
It is, but it is also a skirt with pockets (yay!), and 2 silhouettes, one a pencil shape the other with a pretty almost fluted hem. It is also on a yoke, making it both comfortable and flattering.
I chose the short length with fluted hem.
I took this skirt along to a #CBR sewing meet. Every second sewist had used the pattern and had good reports.
Do you have a favourite skirt pattern?
I faced the yoke with a plain black, thinner fabric because I didn’t have enough of the main fabric. It did help reduce the bulk at the waist, that has to be a good thing 🙂
The pockets are neat.
Worn here with my Alabama Chanin top, finally finished and on the blog soon.
Pattern: Simplicity 2451
Fabric: Japanese textured cotton from Tessuti. No longer available from Tessuti but there may still be some at Ruche Fabrics (in Lonnie). This is a new fabric store for me, I have yet to purchase but…
What I like: the yoke and the pockets
Happy sewing xx
