Back catalogue: Liberty skirt – Simplicity 2451


Sunday 9th March was the warmest day of the year so far and Londoners came out in force to enjoy the weather.


Sunday afternoon on Primrose Hill

Most of my warm weather clothes are still in storage but I found Simplicity 2451 lurking in my wardrobe. Yes, it was warm enough for bare legs and sandals, woo hoo and I was determined to make the most of it. It could be snow and sleet next week.

I made this skirt with some pretty Liberty Tana lawn bought from Goldhawk Road. I added yellow piping around the yoke and pockets to define the style lines and break up the busy print. It was my first go at piping and I followed the handy tips from Kestrel’s post here. There’s a bit of basting involved but the finished effect is so satisfying. I love how it pops out from the print. I lined my skirt with some cream cotton to give it more body as tana lawn has a delicate handle.

I’d heard so many bloggers rave on about this pattern and I’m a convert too. It’s easy to put together, is well cut and has interesting design details. I love anything with pockets. This is my favourite skirt pattern to date. It seems we are heading out of winter over here. Yay, time for Spring/summer sewing.
