may 28 #mmmay14 hot pink hollyburn skirt front

Ah, Hollyburn- I was so nervous to make you! Zippers nearly cause hives in anxiety and it turns out the lining caused the most problems.

Love the length, waist height, and pockets! Next time, and there will be a next time, the bottom of the loop will be sewn in the same time as the waistband to save fiddling with keeping it straight.

I'm also wondering how much easier it would be to just place the front piece on the fold instead of having that front seam to worry about lining up- you can see a lot went wrong in that area for me.

The bright (hot) pink linen was a departure in my usual color choice, but I'm falling in love with it. It's handkerchief weight, and had to be lined- if you look closely, the striped show faintly on the back..oy!

I can see why people love this pattern- you feel so girly AND comfy, doesn't hurt that it's flattering for waist definition, as well.
