I don't know about you, but we were sooooo ready for Spring to arrive this year. There is just something about stepping out of the Winter doldrums that makes you itchy for Spring to come around. So when we saw some flowers starting to make their appearance, we decided to throw a little party for them...

And of course, what is a party without some brand new skirts to go with it...

Making the A Line Pocket Skirt is super simple, and once you get the hang of it, you can whip them out in less than half an hour, adding any embellishments you want!

To make, first determine the length you want your pocket skirt to be, then add 3" to the length for seam allowance.

The width of each panel should be between 15 - 17" (this is not going to be a full gathered skirt, but rather fitting instead).

Cut 2 panels of fabric using these dimensions. Once you have your front and back panels cut simply...

A simple, brand new skirt for Spring that wont keep you couped up inside and in front of the sewing machine!  Now get outside and enjoy some of that gorgeous weather...
