***EDIT: January 28, 2020; Pattern testing is now closed. Thank you ***
I am in the process of completing my first sewing pattern and needing a few lovely people to help me test out the pattern before releasing.
Named after the poppy (Coquelicot in French) the Coquelicot skirt is a flowy and adaptable skirt thanks to its adjustable waistband. This skirt was inspired by a vintage silhouette of the 1940’s and 50’s with a historical twist with it’s 18th century inspired pockets. Perfect for history-bounding!
View A is a sleeker silhouette with a 1/2 circle skirt design and a simple adjustable waistband using a D ring. View B is a full gathered circle skirt with a comfortable wide inner laced waistband. Both views have ties that tie up in the back, however these can be easily elongated to have them wrap around to tie around the front if desired.
View A: Advanced Beginner
View B: Intermediate
View A only: 2 (2.5cm/1 inch) D rings (usually sold as a pair)
View B only: 6mm -12 mm (1/4 - 1/2 inch) wide ribbon at approx. 190cm long (75 inches)
