Today I’m sharing this Sailor skirt I made for a magazine tutorial. I sent it off Monday and photographed myself in it before. The tutorial is based on a child’s tutorial I wrote for drafting your own sailor skirt last spring. The skirt has a flap in the front that opens. It could also be made with a side zipper, which would probably be smart if you don’t want to open the flap. It has welt seams throughout. I like how the welt seams look on this thick textured twill I bought at The Fabric Store on La Brea in Hollywood. The buttons are vintage I think. I bought them at a yard sale. I hope I get it this skirt back in time for spring!
