I am a sewaholic. When I don't get to sew for a period of time my eye begins to twitch. OK, not literally, but I certainly feel something is missing. I don't have a lot of time to sew at present. In fact, I have not sewed for a few weeks after I finished a romper for my baby girl. I started feeling grumpy. Sleep deprivation only made things worse. I needed a fix. I needed to make something quick and easy, fun and wearable.
My mum gave me the Everyday skirt pattern as a Birthday present, and it ticked every box.
Friends, I am in love with this skirt! It has a relaxed fit and sits just above the hip bones. It is exceptionally comfortable and very forgiving for my post-baby body!
I think that the gathering on the skirt combined with a flat waistband at the front makes the tummy area look nice. The elastic at the back will make adjusting the skirt easier as my body continues to shrink (hopefully). And the pockets! They are just the right size!
I made this skirt from chambray I also used for this dress for R and this dress for my niece. There is a possibility I still have three metres of this fabric in my cupboard...
