Any village murders need solving? If you just give me a minute to powder my nose and quickly knit a cardi, I could be the sleuth you’re looking for in my new super duper Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt!
At first I was thinking primary school headmistress circa 1975 but I’m much comfier with Agatha Christie’s iconic little old lady. If I take it up a tiny bit so it sits just on my knee instead of just below, I may be able to shake off this image, but on the whole … I love it!
This is my first Sewaholic pattern and it won’t be my last, it’s very clear and simple, I love the design. The fabric is another Walthamstow, £2 per metre find and there’s something quite nice about it with the orange and cream flecks running through it.
I went for view B, but took a bit of length off (not enough apparently) as I just loved the button tabs. Buttons and big pockets, what’s not to like about this?
And yes, I did add piping to the pockets …
How nice it that?!
And look, an invisible Zip! I did think this may make my bum look humungous, but I think it’s ok. I don’t actually care, I like this skirt so much and round bottoms are good!
Next time? A little bit shorter but that’s just me. Oh, and itchy fabrics need lining, or a decent petticoat!
This pattern has so many possibilities, a denim number is next on my list with contrasting piping, but floral, summery versions excite me no end! You should buy this pattern, it’s very, very satisfying!
