Another Cleo Skirt for me! This fabric…GAH…just…love. With a black tee and boots, it’s a great outfit for winter (I wear black leggings underneath).
Fabric: Loominous II by Anna Maria Horner
Pattern: Cleo skirt, Views A + B combined
How to: Cut the View A skirt but use the View B length line at the bottom (I also added 2 more inches to the length for my 5’8″ height). Add pockets and construct as if you were making View A, but omit hem bands and then hem up as if it were View B. I also chose to fold up a smaller hem allowance to make the skirt 3″ longer than the pattern intended.
I think the photo above gives you an idea of how this fabric moves; it’s really light (loosely woven = great drape) and a similar weight and behavior to shot cotton, if you’re familiar with that. Wore this outfit for a date night with Mr Rae last weekend. Woot woot!
You can make your own with the Cleo Skirt pattern, now available in my shop!
