Simplicity 2528


So, I made vintage simplicity 2528 which is a wrap around skirt with large patch pockets. Did I happen to mention that the pockets are large? I trimmed them with bias contrast that is the same dotted print from the reverse applique flower detail. After the skirt was finished, I realized that it needed to be shorter. Not wanting to loose the great rick rack action, I had to shorten it with small pleats. The hemline is now weighted and holds its shape much as it would with a petticoat. Happy accident.

Love your skirt. I would not have thought of putting the red with your main fabric and it looks great. Nice shoes too.

Love, love LOVE it! Especially the reverse applique flowers...and the rick rack...and the color combination...and the pockets that are large enough to hold eight kids, four hounddogs and the piggy we stole from the shed...oh, wait, that's Grandma's Featherbed. Oh, well...I still love the skirt!

Hey, nice Fluevogs! I also love the happy accident with the hem--that's a great idea for deliberate use too, I might try it.

The shoes make your skirt sing! Love it! I may use your "happy accident" for a dress I'm contemplating. What a very good thought.
