Asymmetrical Fold Skirt

I finished my asymmetrical fold skirt yesterday afternoon. I think it turned out great and I love the contrast between the denim and the Coriander fabric. Just a heads up if you're going to make this skirt–the pattern pieces for the skirt facing are shorter for the left and right sides than the actual skirt. Make sure you measure and make adjustments before cutting out the facing pieces.

Time for a Skirt

I spent a lot of time at Bolt yesterday afternoon trying to find some good prints for this skirt featured on the cover of Stitch Magazine. It was difficult to find fabric with the color scheme that I wanted for fall and winter. Most things seemed to fall in the pastel range. So, then I decided to go for denim with Alexander Henry Coriander as my contrasting fabric. I'll start this project as soon as the fabric is out of the dryer.
