I used New Look 6129:
I have already made this skirt in dark navy poplin ( recyled from an old skirt - you can see it here).
The skirt has pockets and an elastic waist with drawstring. I chose to use elastic only and omitted the drawstring. Here is the line drawing of the skirt:
This second version looks a little better than the first- partly because the fabric is easier to sew, and partly because I have already made it once and know what to do.
So, on with the photos:
I've made the skirt fairly long because I already have a straight skirt made out of cotton drill that is above the knee and the Rachel Comey skirt that is above the knee. So I have made this one longer, because sometimes that is what I want. Depending on what I am doing, what top I am wearing and what shoes I put on.
I have another version of this skirt made in navy broadcloth - a shorter skirt, and I will blog that after I have finished showing you my calico collection. I have a two pairs of trousers to show you over the next few weeks :)
