Gemma Skirt by Violette Field Threads

Next up on my recap from the blog tour we did, I am showing the Gemma skirt from Violette Field Threads. With this skirt I like the high-waisted band and pockets. I used a green sage lawn and buttercream swiss dot from Miss Matatabi, that are no longer available.

For modifications, I added a lining to the skirt. The sage green cotton lawn was a beast to work with and wrinkled like nothing else - but it is so pretty! There are a few things I would do differently next time with this skirt. First would be to interface the front waistband to give it a bit more structure. Second would be to bring the pockets closer together. Other than that this is a great pattern!

  1. This outfit (and child) are super adorable! What shirt pattern was used? I looked at the VFT Gemma but didn't see this shirt as an option. Thank you!
