The tulip skirt from Sew Over It was my first ever independent pattern. It was where my sewing journey began! The pattern in usual fashion has brilliant instruction with clear illustrations, simple pattern notions to follow and a great fit. The tulip share creates a wonderful feminine feature which is a classic shape that is great for all occasions. I’ve made this one from a heavy weight cotton. Others I’ve made are in demin, cordary and even woollen tartan. The added pockets just finish the skirt and even though they are shallow which means you can’t quite fit your phone into them, I love how they add to the tulip silhouette. I have only made the short version as I’m not sure the shape of the knee length version would suit my style.
