Floral Skirt with Denim

What did we do before Pinterest?  I saw this outfit

and here is my interpretation:

I went to look for a floral that would work for me.  I selected this Mood Fabric's cotton sateen

and used McCall's 6038
source  - Pattern Review

which I made once before.  The sewing is pretty straight forward and I used an invisible zipper.  Lining was not used  but this method for the facings, which gives a cleaner finished edge.

closer view of the skirt.

Yes, I can stand up too!

Then so you can see the skirt with no belt
which I don't like that look, I need some waist definition and the belt helps with that.

I ca see wearing this skirt with t-shirts, dressy knit tops and cardigans.  A fun addition to my wardrobe.

Now I am sewing a tailored coat or a quilt as my serger broke last night.  Off to the repair shop today, I am going to miss it so.


  1. That is really cute! I love the look with the belt too. Sorry your serger broke. :(
