Button Fly Skirt


If she could decide, she'd be standing knee deep in the snow wearing a light summer skirt and a short sleeve T-Shirt, insisting that she really, honestly, is not cold. At all.

But I know she needs warmer clothes. Bigger, warmer clothes. Every time I turn around she's grown 2 cms.

So I am glad it's KCWC again. This is yesterday's work. An autumn button fly skirt.
With pockets to take tissues. She's very concerned about that. Someone might have a runny nose and might need one.

lovely skirt, especially the mismatched buttons and pockets. my daughter is the same way, but thank goodness she likes to wear tights! makes skirts/dresses possible when it gets cold.

Thank you all for your comments.

I made the pattern for the skirt. But it's not too difficult. Take a standard skirt pattern, add some pockets and and extra width for pleats and the button fly. Easier than it might sound. Promise.

I often find myself wishing you designed clothing for adult women too! If you had a clothing line, I would completely buy it--all of it.
