Okay, so Julie from High Fiber Content (love that name!), questions the pocket in the center of a skirt thing. And I concur--it is a little strange, but not strange enough to stop me from trying it! With as many skirts as I have, I'm always looking for something new, so here's my version.
Of course I don't have Marimekko fabric lying around for making muslins. I used this green and white print once before, pre-blog, for a wrap skirt. In fact, that wrap skirt was the second or third thing I ever sewed, and I used the Sew What: Skirts book. I'm not the first one to say this, but that is a great book--very informative and not at all intimidating.
The one problem I have with that skirt is that I never know what to wear with it. I look awful in white, and matching the green would be kind of tough, so it just hangs in the closet, forgotten. To help with that, I used navy blue bias tape to finish the hem of the new skirt. It was either that or bright pink, and my husband picked the navy.
So, anyway, the whole point of this exercise was to try out that pocket. It was easy to replicate--all I had to do was cut two fronts and sew them together like so:
And here's the pocket in action! Just a spot to tuck a little something.
So is that weird? I guess it is, a little. How about some more views?
