This skirt has been a long time in the making and is probably my most thought out, planned make yet. I first pinned this Michael Kors’ skirt over a year ago. It is the colour that I love most about this skirt, I kept my eye open for over a year for just the right fabric. But, I came up empty handed. When I saw this skirt I knew the Sewaholic’s Crescent skirt pattern would be the perfect pattern for this project and my resolve to make this skirt amped up! I went down to my local and bought three meters of beautiful white rayon batiste. I ordered some Amazon Green Dylon dye. This stuff is amazing, I threw the fabric and dye in the washing machine, turned the machine on and out came the exact fabric I was looking for!
I ran into a little snag when I went to make the skirt, two of the pattern pieces for the skirt were missing. If you had a look at my sewing studio you would understand why! I decided to use the lining pieces for both the inside and out. To create the maxi-ness, I just measured from my hip down to the floor and added a few inches. I then just extended the skirt pieces straight down to that length.
Here are some photos. We went over to Government House yesterday evening and had a little photoshoot in the gardens overlooking the Juan de Fuca straight.
