More octopus goodness! I love this fabric so much....
Yet another half-circle skirt - (I think the shape is much more flattering than full circle, just personal preference). My others were Mimi G version here and Gold sequin version here.
However the glorious bit about this one is not only the print but THIS ONE HAS POCKETS! Seriously - the joy of a skirt with pockets. I have no idea why - one of the mysteries of the universe.
It's self drafted using the ol' Circle Skirt App from By Hand London - a wonderful little tool if you can't be bothered to bust out GCSE maths and use pi.
The skirt consists of 1 front piece, 2 back pieces for center back invisible(ish) zip insertion and pockets which were taken from my True Bias Southport pattern. Oh - and a waistband of course. Fastened with a hook and bar trouser fastening so you can't see if from the outside.
This fabric is of course the notorious 'Mystery Food' in Sapphire - from the Cotton + Steel Bluebird Collection. I bought this and the white/navy version from Hawthorne Threads who offer excellent delivery to the UK. The white version is destined to be another one of these.
I was super excited to have made the skirt and shot outside to take pictures while it was still sunny - it wasn't hemmed. It is now. Cracked out the bias bound hem again - perfect for circles! Gives it a bit of weight aswell so aids the hanging of it.
Can't wait to wear this one - was one of those projects that's been in my head for ages and feels nice to have realized it!
