Colette Myrtle as a Skirt
I love my new Myrtle from last week so much I wore it on Monday to work, and Saturday to my Alpha Gamma Delta little sister’s wedding since her color was purple!
So following the Myrtle fest I made a skirt version.
Fabric: Cotton Seersucker with metallic stripe.
Pattern Pieces: Cut short version of the skirt front & back on the fold, and 4 pocket pieces.
Since the waist band of the dress Myrtle folds down (rather than up) making Myrtle into a skirt couldn’t be easier.
I cut the back skirt on the fold, be sure to scoot it over 3/8” since you don’t need that seam allowance.
Other than that I followed the woven Myrtle directions for the skirt. I used my 1/4” rolled hem foot for the bottom hem.
I sewed everything with the designed 3/8” seam allowance, then I serged the edges so they don’t fray.
For the waistband I serged the top edge and then just folded and stitched it over the elastic, which reduced bulk and makes it easier.
Love the Myrtle as a simple full skirt, complete with pockets!
Here are some pictures of skirt, learn how I make my tags in this post.
