Lovely, swishy skirt .... with pockets!

This pattern has five eighth inch seams so it was easy to French seam the top part. I had to cut the ruffle in three parts and allow for that when buying as I was using 110cm fabric. I clipped the pocket seam corners on the second pass which I need not have done. It's also necessary to pay attention to the way the finished seams are lying when they cross over others.
If making again, I would top stitch the pocket tops before attaching them to the skirt front and back as they have a tendency not to lie flat.
It's a great pattern and I wore it to a summer evening concert. Now I want to make a matching top.

Olive skirt - Dhurata Davies Patterns

This is a really super pattern. The skirt was straightforward to make with excellent instructions. The style is very comfortable to wear with a nod to the current trend for ruffles whilst cleverly not creating too much bulk over the tummy/hip area. I used a nice soft viscose from Sew Me Sunshine which feels lovely against the skin and was not too challenging to sew. I made a size 14 without alterations. It was great to find a pattern which I don’t have to lengthen (5’ 10” tall) - as you can see it’s ankle length on me.  Thoroughly recommended!
