Urban Seamstress’s Sophia Skirt

admin Hack, Pattern Review 0 Comments

This make for Simple Sew Patterns is the Sophia skirt. I used lovely black denim from fabric land as I wanted this skirt for the winter autumn months

The skirt is made of 3 panels, pockets, and a waistband, so it was super quick to cut.

The front and back is made of 3 panels

The photo above shows the front panel and the 2 side panel.

I took 2 inches off the hem as I am 5ft 2.

I then marked the pleats on all the skirt panels

 adding pleats on the Sophia skirt (inside view)

I found the pleats moved slightly when I stitched them, as the fabric had a slight bit of stretch, so I secured them with more pins.

I added a few extra pleats at the front and then basted across all the pleats.

Adding the waistband

I cut one side of the pockets in this lovely floral cotton also from fabric land

Sewing in the pockets.

And teamed with my first knitted cardigan (more about that knit later)
