|Phoebe would NOT get out of the way|
I'm not sure what I was thinking when I decided that I needed to make the large size, but it turned out to be enormous. I hate tight clothing and tend to buy things a little oversized, but there is relaxed, and there is ridiculous, and the large skirt made me look like a dustbowl farmwife. I had to rip out the zipper and remake the whole skirt as a medium. It was a pain at the time, but when I look back at the things I've sewed and crafted over the years, there has never been an instance in which I regretted ripping out and re-doing my work. As my dear great aunt, Sister Ellen used to say, "All good knitters rip." The same applies to seamstresses.
I've already started a muslin for a bias-cut plaid version of this skirt. I've been wanting a bias-cut plaid skirt for ages. I used plaid scraps from my fabric basket for my practice version of this skirt. Wool is expensive and matching plaid just right is intimidating.
I used Amy Butler's Barcelona Skirt pattern, which you can see here. Or search for the hashtag #barcelonaskirt on instagram to see what other people have done with this pattern.
