I made this skirt a couple of years ago based off of an Orla Kiely design. It was during the time when I was obsessed with everything made from her. Every collection has a beautiful vintage nostalgic feel that I can only compare to the feeling I get after watching a Wes Anderson film. The way she works with prints and colors is genius, and she'll always be one of my favorite designers.

The skirt was made using a linen fabric I found in the $1 section at Wal-Mart (where else). It's a simple gathered skirt with an invisible zipper in the back. There are two layers on the skirt that overlay each other and hidden pockets in the sides of the skirt. The bottom hem line was finished using hand made 1 inch bias tape made from muslin. I know that muslin is normally used for mock ups, but I liked the color, plus it saved a bit of money.
