I had originally purchased this fabric  with the intention of making a more Fall/Winter appropriate dress.  When I got the fabric home Tony was worried that the print was too busy. I asked my Mom and she thought it would with a fuller skirt. I took that literally and did a full skirt from Butterick 6285


You cant tell from the envelope photo but this skirt has some really delightful double box pleats in the front and back.


One weird thing about this pattern is that the seam allowance are completely crazy. The back zip has a 1.5″ allowance!!!! the sides are 1″  Other places are 5/8″  You really have to pay attention to the directions. Im not sure why it is like this, its a total waist of fabric.

In the back I decided to skip the hook and eye and just use a large button instead


I happened to have a yellow cardigan that matched perfectly to complete the look.


I ordered some labels just after christmas. They finally arrived so I was able to put one in this skirt.
