Market Skirt Done!
It's the Independence Day holiday, Happy Merdeka to all Malaysians! And I've finished a Market Skirt for Hanan, as if I ever bring her to the market lol!
I used the ever popular tutorial by Dana from MADE. I love everything that she does. Very talented lady and she has great eye for colours.
This skirt ended up a bit on the bigger side for Hanan. I think the 1 inch elastic I'm using is too stiff, it won't stretch much. I need to find good quality 1" elastic asap. The skirt is so easy to make. The gathered pocket is a different story though. Gathering & keeping it together and working with a tiny piece of material is difficult for me. But, it paid off! My first ever buttonholes and those smiling, happy buttons made up for all the hardwork.
I used the cotton poplin fabric leftover from this project. The skirt should fit Hanan nicely by early next year I hope. Have a nice day!
The gathered pocket, real cute but challenging for me
