A skirt with big pockets

summer style

I saw a skirt with big interesting pockets on the internet and decided to make my own. I used the Folkwear walking skirt pattern reduced to knee length. I doubled the waistband and just made up the pockets.
They are sewn on the side panels after asssembly.

Pocket detail.

winter style

I am having a terrible time making good photos. There is just no light to be had on cloudy days.
These were taken in a room with the window open and a light on.

Taking photos outside is, of course, a better idea. However, when it is -20C and windy..it's kinda nippy out there. Thanks Terri, Kim Patti and Pam.

Great skirt. I am constantly amazed at how talented so many bloggers are. Everything is perfect about it. I love your handbag! The tooled leather are my favorite. I have tried for a long time to find one that is practical for day to day wear, but have yet to find one. Most are too small.
