Summer sewing

I've really enjoyed wearing my Rachel Comey brown denim skirt during winter and thought this wonderful burnt orange linen, purchased from Tessuti, would make a perfect summer skirt.


This time I used the same fabric for the pockets as I was concerned about show through. 


I lined it with Sun Silky and this was the best colour match that I could find and also tried out my rolled hem foot for the lining hem. 


and the back view


and someone managed to be in most of my photos!


There is a new top to go with this skirt on the sewing table so fingers crossed I will be back soon.

Gorgeous color, so versatile. I love it with the leopard print.

You really can build a wardrobe around this skirt when you have so many versatile tops.
The pockets look really handy too.

This really is a neat little skirt pattern - just love the colour. You will be able to team this up with many tops over the coming summer ... J

Great skirt - LOVE the colour. What a great summer skirt - and I think we are going to need to be "cool" this summer. The colour should sit nicely in your wardrobe.

Perfect skirt for this crazy hot weather we're having - I'm sure you'll get lots of wear from it this summer

The sun is really shining isn't it? Love this skirt - pockets are something that I miss in summer when I'm not wearing jackets.

I love orange, I love linen, and I love that skirt pattern. Paired with that animal print, a great look!

I love the skirt on you Sharon - the length is great, and the fabric works well for it - it's nice to see it made up in a classic fashion.

Such a great skirt pattern on you! Perfect with the leopard print top - and I actually really love the contrast with the lining you've picked, so earthy and warm.
