But back to the skirt. It's the Milkmaid Skirt by Crafterhours again--I've made two others using this pattern, and it's a great, easy skirt with, you guessed it, pockets. If a women's skirt or dress ever turns up on this website without pockets in it, please alert the authorities, because it means my blog has been hijacked.
I fell in love with this soft, lightweight cotton printed with a denim-y railroad stripe when I found it on clearance for $1.50 a yard, and bought all that they had (about 2.5 yards). This used about a yard of it. I knew as soon as I saw it that I would make a Milkmaid skirt out of it--it even reminds me of the fabric Adrianna used in the tutorial. Love her idea to turn the pocket lining on its side to give it some contrast!
I used a narrow gray bias tape from Colby's grandma's stash for the pocket trim, rather than making my own. One of these days I just won't have something that coordinates and I'll have to make my own bias trim, but until that day comes, I love the packaged stuff.

I love that it's neutral enough to try out my new burgundy tights. I'm delicately dipping my toe into the bright colorful tights trend with burgundy (I have a navy pair too). Wild.
|Those tights are NOT black! Promise!|
By the way, I don't know what I was thinking posting my belted pocket dress yesterday. Who is going to be checking craft blogs on election day? I'm pretty proud of this dress, so if you missed it, take a look! You can even see my incredibly on-trend navy blue tights.
