Amber's New Beignet Skirt!

Meet my new favorite fall skirt! I just finished sewing up this cute little number, the high-waisted Beignet Skirt by Colette Patterns. I finally used the Amy Butler Imperial Fans print that I've been coveting for a while. The twelve red tagua nut buttons are my favorite part!


It makes me feel like such a fancy-pants 1950s lady!

Oh, I have been eyeing this pattern. That looks GREAT! I love your fabric choice and the buttons, the buttons! I might just have to stop in and get myself that pattern.

I love it! I just bought the pattern. I've seen other versions around look more wrinkly/less stiff. What type of interfacing did you use to achieve this result?

thanks!

I didn't use an interfacing, but the fabric is a home dec weight which gives it nice crisp look.
