Watermelon Skirt

This weekend I turned another of the wonderful patterned fabrics I brought back from California into a 1950s style summer skirt. It sits on the waist, has an invisible zip at the back and pockets with bright green lining in the side seams. Now I’m just hoping for the right weather to wear it soon…

Update No. 2: Maybe I should attempt to make something like this next?!

  1. Beautiful! And great colour combo, the vintage green balances the strong pink really well!

    Did the pockets come as part of the pattern or did you add them?
