sewn: for vacation (Simplicity 2609)

Hello from Georgia! We are on our summer travels right now, and I am without much internet access, but thought I’d take a moment to pop in and show off my new skirt – one I’m finally thrilled with.

So the Summer of Skirts continues. This is #4 in the series I think (#5 this year) and the last thing I finished up before our travels (I have sewed one more skirt while on vacation, which I hope to show soon). I haven’t been all that thrilled with any of my skirts so far – there’s always something I’m not wild about – but this one is a huge exception. It came together exactly as I’d envisioned, and it is so cool and super-comfortable.

This is Simplicity 2609, an elastic-waist yoked skirt. It includes three options for tiered skirts (sort of gypsy skirts) and two that are four-panel skirts). This is View D, the longer of the paneled skirts. The fabric is a beautiful white crinkly cotton with white embroidered flowers on it.

I got it at Joann’s in March and held on to it until I found a pattern that I thought would do it justice. And I think I have!

It’s a perfect casual skirt for staying cool and keeping comfortable in the Georgia heat and humidity.

  1. That is the perfect Summer skirt. The white makes it look cool, the embroidery very feminine and of course the fact you made it makes it perfect! I also love that it is longer – it totally inspires me to get to sewing. Great job.
