Megan Nielsen Kelly Skirt
I have admired this skirt for a while, and this skirt by sewbusylizzy was what sold it for me. Now with my shape, i.e. hips, full skirts can be a little hit and miss, so it was with some trepidation that I actually made this. I chose a piece of the softest baby cord in navy blue that had been languishing in my stash since my teenage son was a preschooler. It has been sitting there unloved for so long that it is amazing it is still intact, let alone as deliciously soft as it is.
I am quite pleased with the final skirt but if I was being picky, which we dressmakers (sewists whatever you call us) tend to be, I wouldn't be 100% happy with the side seam. It doesn't line up exactly down my side, the back is a little skimpy and the front a little big comparatively. Now don't get me wrong, this skirt is perfectly wearable and I do like it, but I am pleased that I chose to make this out of some fabric that I didn't have an attachment to, first. Because this is such a simple and easy skirt, I wasn't going to, but sometimes it just pays to trust your instincts.
