This designer must have decided that he/she was tired of skirts with no *&^$#&@* pockets! Here is some serious pocket love. If you are a pocket person, this is your skirt. I confess to never making a skirt or pants without pockets. I dislike carrying a purse everywhere and pockets, lots of pockets, are the answer. Vogue 1248 has lots to love for the pocket addict.
Of course, this is a whole lotta look, so keep the top and shoes and jewelry simple.
You could even make the pockets smaller, but I have to ask - why? To wear a skirt like this, you have to own the pockets.
Now for my whine. McVoguerick recently changed the way they show the pattern information on their website. They used to give the finished garment measurements, but now they blithely say, "FINISHED GARMENT MEASUREMENTS: Printed on Pattern Tissue." Nice going, McVoguerick! Like I am going to UNFOLD the entire pattern to see the measurements! This small change annoys me to no end. It annoys me enough to actually write a cranky letter to the Pattern industrial conspiracy. Put the damn measurements on the envelope! Sincerely yours, Mrs. Hunting Creek
