Just a simple madras skirt, made from “cheater cloth”. I made the pattern by copying my favorite jean skirt. The back has 2 darts, the pockets are made in the same way as the milkmaid skirt, and I had a little help constructing the button fly placket from Wendy Mullin’s book Sew U.
If it looks a little ragged, it’s because I made it over a year ago and I live in this skirt during the summer months. Again, it matches many different colored tops (are you noticing a theme in my wardrobe?), so I can quickly grab one from the closet, add a pair of flip flops, and I’m good to go. Love that!
I originally made this skirt because I was still angsty about the fact that I could never afford the J. Crew versions back from like 1997 when they were so popular. Hey, nobody can say I’m not stylin’, right? (just 13 years too late)
