Pattern, Pattern, Who’s Got the Pattern?

I bought some dark blue Essex (linen/cotton blend) for a skirt. I thought I was getting super-dark navy blue, but it turned out to be sort of a rich royal blue.

Top is the photo from, bottom is an artist’s recreation of the fabric I received. You can see why I was confused, but I like the fabric I got.

When I purchased the fabric, I had the Colette Beignet in mind. It’s a straight, high-waisted skirt that buttons down the front.


But I am also considering the Sewaholic Hollyburn, a flared skirt with a back zip, and Tilly & the Buttons Miette, a wrap-around flared skirt with clever pockets.

Help me decide which pattern to buy! I can’t decide! I am still leaning Beignet, but the other two are strong contenders (with no buttonholes!).

    Looks more labor intensive but I like the skirt with the button holes!

      Me too! I’m going with that one. I think I’ll try one of the others another time, though–they’re really great!
