Cleo Skirt + Summer Showcase

I've had the pleasure of participating in the Summer Cleo Showcase by Rae of Made By Rae. Over the past week, a talented group of sewist have taken Rae's latest sewing pattern, the Cleo, and made it up in their choice of fabric. It's  been fun to see the different directions others have taken the pattern.

For my rendition, I chose a cotton lawn fabric -- a print by Lizzy House from her "Printmaking" collection.  I thought a lightweight lawn might give the skirt a breezy feel, perfect for summer. 

This pattern is a quick make which I'm all about. I chose the longer length with side seam pockets. It features a flat waistband in the front and an elastic waistband in the back which adds to the comfort factor of this skirt. 

Others have been posting their creations all week so if you'd like to take a look at the rest of the showcase, see the links below..
