My sister-in-law gave me this skirt along with a bunch of other very gently used clothes (I love her shopping obsession, it's elevated my wardrobe tremendously... now to only get into a size 6...). This skirt was in it & it was just too long for me.
She likes more tea length skirts & dresses, but I'm a strict knee length kind of girl. The great thing about the length of her skirts is they can be remade into something else.
I just loved the fabric. It's a lovely lightweight linen with this gorgeous embroidery.
I decided to take it and sew Simplicity 2593 in view B. I purchased extra linen to make view A, but decided to leave it simple. The fabric is enough fanciness. :)
It came out pretty nicely and this pattern was so simple. I just love a quick project! It's always the best to get some instant-ish gratification.
