I know I said I needed a white skirt, but apparently I am on a navy blue sewing jag. Besides, I started this skirt before the burda style blouse. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Butterick 5042, view A. It is made of navy Italian linen from Fabric Mart. I added some white topstitching because I really wanted to emphasize the style lines. My mother came down for Easter and wore a skirt with similar circular gores, which reminded me of this pattern, and I just had to sew it!
Studio Tantrum Redondo skirt, but a bit slimmer in the body, and for grown ups. The pattern is only two pattern pieces, the skirt panel (of which you cut four) and a straight waistband. Deceptively simple! The skirt panels all have to be cut single layer, and since they are basically circular flounces, they are serious fabric hogs!
Next up - more navy! Then maybe I'll find another color of fabric in my stash...
