Cute skirt (KnipMode 04/2011-5)

At least, that's what I think. I loved the pattern from the first time I saw it. I found a very nice fabric for it, Swiss cotton, as the lady in the shop called it. I like the print (African inspired?) and the feel of the fabric very much. I didn't feel like modelling today (sorry) but to give you an idea of the length: the hem just hits my knees.

Now, let the pictures do the talking:

and here's the linedrawing, which shows all the cute details.

I like the little buttons, the way that the pockets are partly hidden behind the outer pleats, the wide waistband, the flare of the skirt and the way it shouts 'summer!'.
I didn't make buttonholes but sewed the buttons on through the two layers of the waistband so the two pieces are connected. Other than that, ánd being decorative of course, they have no function.

Here are some detail-pics:

This was, again, a real quick project.
This evening I cut out a t-shirt from a TNT-pattern. No work for another day, so I should find the time to start and finish it tomorrow.
I'm really in sewing-mode lately. I have plans for another t-shirt and a knit dress. And whatever comes next. It's great to be so creative and productive.

I hope you're all feeling the vibe!

That is definitly a cute skirt. I was just looking at a similar style skirt pattern in the Burda magazine, but I think I like the pockets on this one better.
