This simple a-line skirt was a quick project for a rainy morning. I plannedÂ the skirt to show off the vintage shell buttons. The fabric is a lovely mid-weightÂ cotton with a subtle blue and black woven pattern. Â Like most of my skirts it hasÂ pockets in the side seams and a full skirt – aboutÂ a half circle. To make something similar, draft a half circle skirt, divide the front panel down the middle, faceÂ the center cut on both sides, and add the buttons and button holes. I finished the top with a 1″ waistband and the bottom with a quick machine hem.
