DIY Scallop Button Up Skirt - Pattern & How-To

Et voilà! Mesdames et Messieurs, je voudrais présenter les 'Pattern and How-To' pour le 'Scallop Button Up Skirt'! Don't ask!...I just somehow wanted to write anything on French...desperately hoping I did not make any grammar or spelling mistakes in this short introduction! ;)

Anyway, first of all, I wanted to thank you, my dear readers, so much for all those lovely comments. It was a real pleasure to make a pattern and how-to for this skirt, having in mind, that some of you really asked for one.


So I did my very best to write a detailed instruction and draw a well printable pattern. Please have in mind, that this is my first time making a pattern for a garment. I think, it cannot turn out totally wrong (into some trousers or anything!), but especially, if you are about to resize it, just be careful and reflect about each step.

If there are any questions, critic or other useful or just nice feedback, please feel free to contact me! And as I am extremely curious how this pattern works for you, if you don't mind, please send me a photo! :)

Happy sewing everybody:

  4. This is positively darling! I love the scallops and the button up - it's outrageously sweet! This is a terribly tempting diversion at the moment! In fact - I just bought some vintage pink gingham that would look so sweet in it! Thank you Nette!

    xoxo,
    Sunni
