Simplicity 2152

I think this Echino fabric is some of my favourite of all time. I only bought a metre of it (I have no idea why I did not buy more) and wanted to make a skirt from it, which is difficult when I only had a small amount.
Simplicity 2152 was perfect with the bonus of having pockets. I used a denim for the pockets tops and the band and band facing and it came out the perfect length. Another Simplicity pattern with easy to follow instructions that fit together perfectly.

oooh, I think I like this one more than yesterdays! I may be distracted by the fabric though, it's gorgeous! I'm such a convert to the Ecino brigade now. I like these pocket, and a GREAT smiley pic!

Perfect print for a skirt--fun too! Love the contrasting black for waistband and pockets. You have an amazing handmade wardrobe.
