Simplicity, Skirts

Simplicity 2655 Skirt

The pictures of the skirt were taken over a week ago – I wore it literally a few hours after it was done, and had the opportunity to be photographed in a park after I came home from work, just before the sun set. Hence the wrinkles, but hey, that’s what real life is made of.
Nothing much to say about the pattern, really. Simplicity 2655 is a variation on a six-gored yoked skirt, in two different lengths and with optional flounces, pockets and ties. The back and front panels are identical – only the yoke varies slightly from front to back. I made view C, the knee-length version with a flounce, but omitted the tie at the waist. I cut the skirt in a size 8 all around but had to take in the back to my usual size 6. It’s still a bit big at the waist,  probably due to the fact that the fabric has a very slight stretch; but I’m not unpicking the yoke facing and understiching (and invisible zipper) to take it in again.

The fabric is a lovely light brown cotton with a hint of dusty  rose to it.  Perfect weight for a skirt, but it does take a wrinkle a bit more easily than I’d like. 😉
