Now, I know it's quite simple but I'm not quite sure how to start. The dress is from the collection "See by Chlo", and I though it was cute.

I thought I'd buy a closefitting t-shirt, but I'm not quite sure how to cut the skirt. Is it two pieces sown together, or maybe a full or 3/4 circle with slits to the pockets?

Any help is greatly appreciated  Cheesy

It doesn't look like it is any form of circle skirt. I'd guess a rectangle for the front and a rectangle for the back. Gathering on the front looks to be just between the pockets. Do you have a picture of the back?

Here's a picture of one way to do the pockets:

Cut 4 rectangles for the pockets. Place one rectangle right sides together and sew a diagonal line (white line in top pic). Cut away excess fabric. Turn pocket to the inside and press. Lay the skirt right sides down and pint the second retangle to the attached pocket - taking care to only pin to the pocket not all the way through the front fabric). Sew the side and bottom (Green dotted line in bottom pic.) Baste the top and bottom to the edge of the skirt. Repeat for the other side. Sew back to the front. Gather and sew to T-shirt. Sew colored band to the bottom.

I think it should be pretty easy. Make sure you post a pic when you get done.

it is dfinitely not a circle - a rectangle or a trapeze, with inseampockets. Be sure to choose very drapey fabric for the skirt and good quality tee because the skirt will pull the tee a lot

I recently bought a dress from forever 21 that looks like that. So if you have given up on making it, you can buy it online!  Tongue

It just looks like a gathered skirt to me with a slight flare and the inset pockets like someone mentioned above just before the side seams of the skirt
Very simple actually, get a basic A-line skirt pattern, double the measurement of the waist front n back this is so u can gather it, add the inset pockets, gather skirt sew side seams hem watever n wallaaa!

Hope i helped x x x

I would agree, choose a good quality tee, and stretchy material for the bottom, the skirt seems to be a gathered tulip shape, and the pockets would be rectangles on the inside.
