Found this awesome 80's McCall's pattern at the thrift store. The pattern was for a long, high-ish waisted skirt. I redrafted the yoke sections to make it sit at the hips, made it shorter, and added side-seam pockets. Fabric is just a thrifted cotton sheet dyed with a mix of brown and black Rit dye. Side zip.

I started sewing some little flowers and embroidery, but quickly became bored. Probably a good thing; coulda been too much.










Thanks for looking,
Amy

i'm so loving this! but where are the side-seam pockets? (can't spot them!) take a pic of you using the pockets? <3 Smiley that's some real nice work, anyway. the way you embellished the upper side of the skirt is amazing!

I guess I did a good job of making them hidden, then, eh?! No, really, the tops of the pockets begin just below the yoke. The openings are topstitched and the topstitching continues down the sides, making them undetectable except when in use. I'm an idiot, though. Since the yoke is about 4 inches tall, the pockets sit too low to make them comfortable to use.

I love the style.  And the embroidery detail you did on the yoke is just the perfect amount.  I love the way it contrasts with the plain lower skirt.
