I love, love, love this skirt! I finished it Thursday night and was so excited I wore it upstairs to show my husband. (He loves it, too.) Friday I wore it to our visit to the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, where these photos were taken.
While making this skirt, I did a couple things for the first time: I used French seams, and I made buttonholes (by hand!). I sewed 72" of super skinny binding tape to make the drawstring, too.
It is summery, it's comfortable, and I love how I feel while I'm wearing it--not like a run-down mother of three, not at all! This skirt came out pretty much exactly like the picture I had in my head when I started. I love that! I'll post again after the weekend with more details on exactly how I made it and some tips on making buttonholes by hand (on voile, no less), but in the meantime, I'll leave you with a few more photos from the sculpture park. (ETA: The tutorial is right here!)
