A few weeks ago, anthropologie was selling the Higgledy-Piggledy skirt and it immediately made me think of my Knipmode pattern. I decided I had to make it.
Higgledy-Piggledy SkirtMy skirt is not an exact replica, but it has the same vibe to it. The Knipmode pattern is in Dutch so I used Google Translator to wade through it. It did not help very much, but since I had made a wrap skirt before I just figured it out as I went. It was pretty easy.
Here is the line drawing from Knipmode:
I used some of the Vera Wang fabric that I bought when fabric.com had it on sale for $1.95.
Here is the inside of the skirt.
Finally, I wore the skirt to church on Sunday and then to a birthday party afterwards. I have never gotten so many complements on a skirt before. When I told people I had made it, they were amazed. Now, all of us in the sewing community know that the making of this skirt was really no big feat, but it still amazes me that people are so stunned when you tell them you made something. Here is the outfit I wore:
Velveteen Jacket: JCPenney (old)
Ecru blouse: JCrew outlet
Chocolate brown Tights: Banana Republic (old)
Bouquet of Roses Shoes: anthropologie (Christmas present last year)
