Drill A-Line Summer Skirt

What you will need

  • Stretch Navy Cotton Drill
  • metal zip
  • thread
  • pattern was just a straight skirt I own and I added a couple of inches to the side seams on an angle to the hem. I had seen a skirt in a magazine that had hip angled welt pockets
  • so this is the starting point for the skirt
  • I then added in a jean fly and top stitched all the seams and darts. I finished the waist and hem with bias binding.

Q&A with Pohutukawa

Pat Mitchell asked:
Welt pockets look great, bias trim waist is such a good idea.
Pohutukawa answered:
Thanks, yes when my pukehina doesn't accommodate a waistband!! Bias is fab! Thanks Pat!
