{sewing} Sewaholic Hollyburn Skirt

Hello again!

I know it's been a little while since my last post but life has been getting in the way a bit - in the good sense - so I haven't had a lot of time to take photos and write up posts. Which is why this skirt has been finished for weeks now and I've only just managed to get it posted today.

This is the Hollyburn Skirt by Sewaholic Patterns. It's a super flattering flared skirt with slash pockets. There are 3 length options and you can choose to add button tabs or belt loops to it, too. I went for version B for the length but omitted the button tabs because they'd just get lost in the spotty pattern.

I made a size 8 and fully expected to have to bring the waist in a little, like my Crescent Skirt but the fit around the waist is spot on. The pockets add a lovely touch to it and are so very practical!

The fabric is a cotton sateen that I've had for ages. I only had 2 metres of it and it was a narrow cut so I didn't indulge in pattern matching. I only *just* managed to squeeze the skirt out of what I had so the front seam doesn't match at all. However it doesn't bother me because the flaring of the skirt hides the seam very well and it isn't noticeable while I'm wearing it.

I really like the length of it. I think it's very elegant and I've got plans for at least another 2 midi skirts. I can't believe I've never had one before... The combination of the smart length with the black and white spots makes me feel like I've gone back in time to the 60's and I love it.

Oh, and if you were wondering, the top is my Simplicity raglan which was blogged here.

See you next time!
