I made a skirt - with pockets!

Hello blog! I have seriously missed you! University is finally over for the semester and I can now spend some more time sewing, making videos and taking photos *big huge sigh of relief*.
Well, as you all know, I've well-and-truly mastered the circle skirt. SO, I'm finally(!) branching out into other skirt types. My favourite types of skirts right now are below-the-knee gathered flare-y skirts with pockets, so I wanted to challenge myself to learn how to make one. And I totally succeeded.

I'm just a *little* bit excited about learning how to make pockets. Can you tell??

Another technique I've learned - belt loops! So that I can pair these pretty vintage-style skirts with some pretty vintage belts!
And yes, I will aim to make a tutorial about making pockets within the month! Bear with me - I've literally just learned how to make them and want to perfect them before trying to teach others.
Now please excuse me while I go and make a version of this skirt in EVERY SINGLE COLOUR.
Seriously though, I'm so excited to have a whole month ahead of me just to make videos and improve my sewing skills. I think that I'm going to tackle a Make Thrift Buy challenge either today or tomorrow! Are there any particular ones that you're itching for me to do?? Let me know! My "to-do" list is here.

Outfit details:
Top is thrifted
Cardigan from Dangerfield
Belt is thrifted
Skirt is handmade by me!
Necklace is from HK:ID (Hong Kong)
Shoes are Naot Kedmas
Petticoat from Ebay

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend

    Your amazing skirt has pockets, and it is such a huge deal nowadays. I hate modern skirts because of the lack of pockets. Looking forward to see the tutorial!
