An a-line skirt with centre front panel and a back centre panel with a centre back seam (for zip).
This is the second version of this a-line skirt I made for the 2013 Mini-Wardrobe competition. This version I altered to adjust the curve of the waist to hip and added a centre back seam for the zipper as well as POCKETS! No fake pockets here, despite the prevalence in plus sized patterns having fake ones to let the line of the outfit not be "ruined." The pockets are across the front side panels and are awesome. Keys in one and mobile in the other. Perfect for dashing out to the shop or wherever.
This version is made with denim left over from making a pair of pants (still WIP!). The seams were zigzag edged and sewn down. The pocket bags are offcuts from an old Halloween costume (geisha) - some cotton quilting fabric and the waistband is a strip of bias binding of the same fabric.
As a jeans and tshirt girl I love this skirt as it's denim and casual, has pockets, but has the added stylishness of the pocket linings that makes me smile every time I see it.
