Pattern Testers for the Coquelicot Skirt



I got to say that the pattern testers for this skirt were the nicest and most supportive group of people and their help has been invaluable in making the Coquelicot skirt possible! I am so thankful for each of them for their help and knowledge and talents!

Esther @esthermakesadventures

"The best part of this skirt is the ADJUSTABILITY! I love that it incorporates an 18th Century style pockets because who needs puny pockets when your phone is the size of your face."

Haleyy @patchesandhems

"I love the bias hem finishing. Honestly genius and I will be taking that knowledge with me to future circle skirts. I love the lacing idea for view B waistband. It is super functional for me, and also distributes weight super well which was nice because my skirt unexpectedly ended up being very heavy. The seam finishings in general are all very clever and utilitarian, I approve!"
