Pattern: Megan Nielson Kelly Skirt
This skirt is a great little pattern by Megan Nielson. I’ve now made it a few times and I think the thinker the material the better. The fabric I have used is a tan denim so the pleats really sit firmly on my waist.
I love outfits that have pockets, another great features and since this skirt has 10 buttons, I actually went onto eBay and bought some in bulk from an online Australian supplier. I found originally with my button-up work shirts that the buttons were the most costly part of the garment. Going directly to the suppliers is a great way to save on costs, especially since some of my favourite local shops are closing down.
Megan Nielson patterns are also great for beginners as they have really good pictures and instructions. A little more costly than your sale patterns at Spotlight but still very trendy and catered for the younger generation to adults. Plus, you can download them as PDF’s and get them instantly!
