I've had this skirt in my wardrobe for years . . .
There's nothing particularly wrong with it but I was getting a bit bored of it so decided to jazz it up a bit.
The first thing I did was add pockets (because pockets in skirts are awesome).
To do this, cut out four pocket shapes using your hand as a guideline.
Pin two pairs together.
Stitch and trim.
Turn them inside out and you will have two pouches that look like this . . .
Unpick the side seam in your skirt where you want your pockets to be. Turn inside out and poke your pouch through as shown below.
Sew the pocket to the skirt and when you turn the skirt around it will look like this . . .
Push the pocket in and it will look like this . . .
Voila - you have a skirt with pockets!!
I wanted a bubble skirt so I ruffled the hem of the skirt. To do this I did a running stitch around the bottom edge - it took FOREVER - then pulled the thread to bunch up the fabric.
I then sewed the outer layer to the under skirt and it was complete! :)
