My favorite features of this skirt are the yoke, hardware and belt. I also love the look of the topstitching, although I must admit it isn’t very fun to do. Ha! I love the details of this skirt, and how they come together to make a truly fun piece to wear.
I remember growing up having a lot of “paint splattered” clothing. It was the trend of the 80’s, meaning of course I didn’t wear it much until the 90’s. Ha! I was never very on trend, but I do have a lot of nostalgic feels surrounding this style. Using Katie Kortman’s Multi Colored Dot Rainbow, in bull denim from Spoonflower seemed like the obvious choice for this particular skirt. It is reminiscent of paint splatters and the colors are amazing! I chose to have this print printed on 100% cotton, 11.7oz dogwood denim. I was beyond impressed with the quality this denim, and the vibrancy of the pattern (even after a wash!)
The only part of the skirt pattern that I will play around a bit with next time is the back yoke. It tends to bunch up when worn, and I will look into the proper adjustment that I need to make for my body.
I really love the style and look of this skirt, and cannot want to make all the versions! I have some navy corduroy that I am so excited to use next!
The material and construction of this skirt allows for it to be lived in, and experience a lot of wear and tear. And yes, I did ride this amazing bike in my amazing skirt! Not sure how often the bike and skirt will meet, but so happy to have this garment in my closet.
