Skirt number two for the skirt sew-along month is completed. The fabric is a rayon eyelet with a scalloped edge purchased last year at Hancock's.
This is an out of print pattern from Simplicity - 4196.
I had sewn this skirt last summer from a peach skin border print. It's not only comfortable but flattering as the fullness is attached to a yoke so it is not concentrated at the waistline.
Another very simple skirt to sew. There are only three pattern pieces - a front and back yoke and a skirt piece that is cut out twice. The bottom of the skirt is a straight line so it works well if you want to highlight a border printer or a fabric edging such as the eyelet fabric.
The only changes I made to the pattern were to add an invisible zipper,
and a full lining. The border print was a bit on the sheer side and the eyelet, well of course I needed a lining unless I wanted to play peek-a-boo.
Two skirts in the style are probably enough so the pattern may soon be retired from my sewing pattern stash.
