Violet Blouse and Tie Waistband Skirt

My latest finished projects!

The shirt is a Colette Patterns Violet blouse made with lightweight breezy Japanese fabric from Sew LA.

The skirt is a a very swingy Robert Kaufman cotton linen blend fabric. I sort of followed this tutorial, but I did the waistband differently and just cut straight pieces across the fabric instead of the way she cut angled panels. The front of the skirt is a full 42" or so wide rectangle across the fabric, and back is another one.

Originally I was going to have it tie in the back, but when I realized the ties were long enough to tie in the front I decided I liked that better, so I added a big buttonhole in one of the ties so I could thread them together and bring them around for the bow.

And the best part...there are pockets! Happy me!
