I don’t often make the same pattern multiple times, but since I love my first Kelly skirt so much, I made a couple more for an easy summer wardrobe. It’s so easy to slip one of these on with a basic tank or tee.
The beige one is made from what I think is some form of twill. I purchased it about a year and a half ago from the clearance section at G Street Fabrics. I cut these in the same size as I did for my first Kelly skirt: I cut the waistband between the XS and S and I flared the skirt out from an XS at the waist to S by the bottom of the skirt. For more details about the construction, please see this post about my original Kelly skirt.
I chose to use a contrasting fabric for the pocket lining on the beige skirt. I like having surprise colors and patterns inside my clothes. It brings a smile to my face when I catch a glimpse of it during the day. Yep, colors definitely affect me that much.
I liked working with this pattern a lot, so I think it’s time to get another Megan Nielsen pattern or two. Luckily, my birthday’s coming up next month.
