This is the Alder skirt. Its seems basic at first, but then POW!  Fancy pockets! I decided to pay homage to my favorite city: Portland. I love you Ptown.
So here are all the bridges and the reverse on the pockets is the same print in white. The only problem with black fabric is the lint it attracts!
I even get to grace the cover pic of the pattern!!!

From Imagine Gnats: the alder skirt {for women} is a retro inspired a-line skirt with generous pockets and an easy-going style. the pleated front and back darts make for a flattering silhouette, while the elastic back means no finicky closures and a comfortable fit. for a less pronounced a-line shape, flat front and pocket options are also included. the alder skirt is perfect for everyday wear, and includes options that are simple enough for a beginner sewist.

I highly recommend this pattern, get on it, and happy sewing!  Don't forget the Summer of No Pants starts very very very soon!!!!
PS this was one of the rare times I got my husband to help with pics, thanks babe!


  1. It is awesome, especially paired with your Jilted! So, summer of no pants? Sounds good to me.
