The pockets looked so neat on the pattern, though, so this time I chose a solid brown linen blend and vowed not to skip anything. Except...when I got to the pockets, I started questioning them. Won't they make the skirt too casual? Should I leave them off so it's more versatile? No no no! I said I was going to make pockets! So here it is in all its pocketed glory:
Sorry the picture isn't the greatest, but I don't have my photographer. I tried to take some using the timer, but it's too hot outside today to screw around!
A word of advice should you attempt this pattern: One way or another, you MUST mark everything! Each piece is a little different, they have to go together in the right order, and trust me, when you have twelve pieces that all look mostly the same? They need to be marked. I cheated a little and didn't transfer every single marking, but I marked each piece with its name on the wrong side.
No contrasting facing this time! Just some dotty bias tape I've been saving for just the right project.
