I made this from some canvas I had left from some other project; I've forgotten what. It's a flat front a-line skirt with pockets.

I added a kick pleat in the back because, well, why not? And because I wanted to learn how to do it.

I embroidered a couple of anchors on the pockets for a nautical touch.

Gorgeous! Simple but stunning, just the way I like it.

(Also, that pleat suits the nautical look anyway!)

Thanks everyone! Glad you like it. I made the pattern myself (still tinkering with it because that's how I am; can't leave well enough alone).
