Not only did I not have up to 10 things I'd consider wearing to work, I realised I did not have any me made skirts. At this rate, I run the risk of going 7 outfits for a whole month. Not a pleasant thought.
So, like any self-respecting sewist, I hit the blogosphere to find inspiration for a quick skirt project. I decided on a gathered skirt with an elastic waist inspired by Alli, of One Pearl Button. The drafting instructions are here, on Grosgrainfabulous . The good thing about this apart from being quick to sew, was the fact that it does not have a zip, my nemesis.

There were two issues I had with making this.
1) I did not have an old skirt or dress as the instructions called for, so I had to do some calculations of my own, and come up with a gathered skirt.
2) The skirt does not have pockets, but I wanted my skirt to have a pocket, so I had to modify it somewhat.
What did I do?
