Butterick 5466 Skirt-A-Paloosa

As an homage to my Pattern Review friend Anne, from down under, I am creating a skirt wardrobe from Butterick 5466. Take a look at Anne's fabulous collection and you will see why I am so inspired. This pattern is a simple and basic skirt pattern that with a few little nips and tucks can be made to fit like a glove. This first offering is made from a quilting cotton I had in my stash. The geranium print is just so happy! The skirt does not call for lining but I will line all of mine because it just makes for a better experience all around...if you shy away from linings try it on a simple pattern such as this...if for no other reason than the mystique of only you knowing how beautiful things are under your skirt! The lining is polyester and the lace was sold by the yard at High Fashion. Could the color be a more perfect match? Until next time...happy sewing!

  1. Very pretty and as you say the lace on the lining adds a special touch.

    Enjoy wearing this.
