Today, let’s talk about the Safor skirt.
Ever since making the Rosari skirt pattern, I’ve wanted to add another skirt pattern to the collection. And because I couldn’t decide between a short and casual and a knee-length one for more formal occasion, I chose to make them both.
The Safor skirt is a faux-wrap skirt with a hip yoke that follows nicely the body’s curves. The great thing about the faux-wrap is that you can walk easily without the inconvenience of your skirt opening too high. The Safor skirt is confortable and easy to wear.
View A offers inseam pockets hidden between the yoke and the skirt and is quite short (there are lengthen/shorten lines on the pattern if you want to give a little more length to your skirt). View B is knee-length and has a contrasting panel along the hem. This is a great way to play with colors or fabrics contrasts.
Both views have the same asymetrical fold-over front and close with an inviible zipper and a button at the back.
I’ve used Les trouvailles d’Amandine ‘s denim for both versions: in “liane” shade for view A and “etendard” for view B (as it’s reversible, I’ve used the wrong side for contrast). You could also use any medium weight fabric with a little bit of body: denim, linen, gabardine, leather or suede for example.
Let me know if you have any question about the patterns…
