I used the Belladone dress pattern but didn't use the bodice pieces and just made myself a skirt!
It’s super easy to do, you just make a waistband facing by cutting a second waistband piece and use a shorter zip. I had a perfect size purple invisible zip in my stash too!
I put contrast bias binding on my pockets to make them stand out a bit more too.
This fabric is available from Minerva:
1. The fabric didn’t bleed at all. Not remotely! Surprising given the vivid and various colours in use.
2. The weight and drape is what you expect from the high quality cotton you see in shops like Backstitch, Frumble and Fabric Rehab but without the same price tag.
3. Minimal creasing. I love wearing cotton but I hate looking like a crumpled mess by the end of the day. Even though it would be hard to tell in this print, I wore this skirt all day at work. That’s a lot of sitting on trains and at desks and in meetings but the skirt barely creased.
