Pattern: Hollyburn from Sewaholic
Fabric: Mid-blue baby cord from Truro Fabrics.
When I first saw this pattern I admit I was underwhelmed. Nice for beginners, but a bit...boring? Then I started seeing versions pop up on the crafternet and realised how wrong I had been! This skirt is beautiful, and part of that beauty lies in its simplicity. I have been wearing my Crescent skirts to death and whilst I fancy making one for each day of the week, variety is the spice of life so a Hollyburn or two will be very welcome additions.
To pep it up a bit I made strawberry pockets which I love although, interestingly, have made it impossible to find anything to go with the skirt! So I've done the thing I hate doing and gone for black. :-/ I also made the button tabs and used some pretty green buttons, so I think the skirt looks very cute and individual.
The usual excellent Sewaholic instructions and fit, so overall a very easy make.
