Last weekend I have been so excited reading on Megan Nielsen's blog, that she was preparing a DIY for a scallop skirt! I have always wanted one, but never found a pattern for that and somehow did not even think about making one myself.
Anyway, she made a really wonderful and easy to follow tutorial for a scallop skirt with elastic waistband, which in addition to that is also reversible!
Unfortunately, what I had in my mind was a scalloped skirt with button up front!
...sigh...nevertheless, Megan's tutorial motivated me to give it a try myself. :)
I am so glad that I had the heart to draft this skirt pattern myself! It just turned out as I imagined and I couldn't stop giggling after trying it on because I was so happy.
So this is the version I was thinking of: a middle waisted and light ruffled straight skirt with button up front, side pockets and scalloped hem.
I just love it and am planning to make several versions for summer.
Also I was thinking about whether to make a free pattern & tutorial version for downloading. What do you think? Would you like to make one like this?
Update: Instructions and Pattern are now downloadable here!
