I went with a below-the-knee silhouette and I think it's nice with the drapey skirt. I do think that it can look a bit long with flats on, though, hence the wedges. I also feel like it just looks like my dress is too big! I generally like a knee-length skirt best... and maybe it's just that I follow a lot of vintage ladies on instagram but it seems like most people agree: for the #sewphotohop day "mini or maxi" my whole feed seemed to be saying "in between!"
A full skirt is so lovely to swish around in, and I'm so happy to have found a pattern that I can grab whenever I have 3 or 4 yards of something nice just begging to be sewn up. At this point in my sewing, I'm feeling good about my tried and true patterns; I have my faithful no-pattern-needed dirndl skirt, this easy to make raglan-sleeve bodice, a nice a-line shift, simple skinny pants, and a few more go-tos that haven't quite hit the blog yet... Soon though! How are you feeling about your collection of tried and true patterns? Is your whole closet full of duplicates? Still searching for repeat patterns? Or do you buy a new pattern for every project? I'm so curious!
ps: i am so far behind on the photo hop... i've been so busy sewing that i haven't been instagramming! if you want to see me frantically trying to catch up, you can follow me here :)
