A few years ago (2009) I bought this beautiful Heather Baily material (called Pocketbook in Rose from the Nicey Jane collection) and I’ve been hoarding it in my material cupboard since then. It’s such a lovely soft cotton and the pale colours so reminiscent of a breezy summer day. The skirt pattern is from Simplicity (#2226) and is easy and relatively quick to sew up. It’s got a little fullness from the tiny gatherings in the front and a nice wide waistband. One of my favorite things about the pattern are the pockets. I just find skirts with pockets so much more comfortable for some reason. Probably because I have a quick place to put all the garbage my kids hand me every few minutes (these kids actually pass garbage cans to bring me their trash!).The back has a simple zipper closure and a bit more gathering.This just might turn out to be my summer uniform of 2012. Note to self…clean mirror.
