Summer Skirts

Although it's only 16 degree Celcius here today (approximately 61 degree Farhenheit) and summer is never really warm to most, I thought it was time for a new summery frock.

I had purchased this gorgeous fabric from fromhollandwithlove on Etsy and hadn't quite figured out what to do with it until the other day when the straight yards of fabric became my newest summer skirt.

It's a very simply pattern, but one which is very much enhanced by different fabrics. I had made this skirt a few years ago out of a fabulous rich red shirting fabric and adore it. So, what better use for my newest fabric crush. Flat front with fitting darts, long A-line... very simple. But the fun comes in the back that is bunched up with a drawstring to form a sort of bustle.

I love it! My new favourite.
