Crafts: Kelly Skirt

I made another Megan Nielsen pattern, the Kelly Skirt, and I love it!

It has a distinctly vintage vibe, but I don't mind. The high-waist, A-line shape is incredibly flattering, and the button-front and pleats add interest.

I used Robert Kaufman's Yarn-Dyed Essex Linen in Denim, variegated thread, and old U.S. Navy dress blues uniform buttons. It's a versatile piece, and I know it'll get a lot of wear.

I cut a size S (and added an inch to the XL hemline), and it fits well. The waistband is a little loose, but not terribly. I just need to tuck in my shirt.

I'd love one in brown corduroy and black flannel.
