*Tutorial is now up on pg. 3. If you have any problems let me know*

As the pattern is an old rare pattern, I made up my own tutorial. I measured the pieces and calculated what each measure would be. So, I have yet to actually make one from this tutorial. But from what I see, it should work. If you come across a problem let me know and I will fix it.

I made this skirt today with blue cotton and muslin. I still have yet to hem, put in the hook and eyes, press the darts and pleats. I'm 5'2" and the hem ends mid calf.

Front: excuse the pins, I have to sew in the hook and eye closures.


Button closure and Buttons:

Back:



Let me know what you think of it.
Thanx,
Pamela

It looks very interesting.  I like the color combination and the buttons are wonderful.

Thanx everyone! I usually don't like high waisted things, but this style I happen to like.

Gorgeous!  I love high-waisted skirts---they don't shift around so much, and they look good on almost anyone.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
