Butterick 5619 in Robert Kauffman London Calling print

 Don't let that face fool you.  I'm very happy with this little skirt.  :-)  I cut all of the fabric and interfacing for this skirt about a week ago, and on Friday morning, I thought, "Hey, I have an hour.  I'm going to make that skirt."  It actually took an hour and fifteen minutes, which aint bad for a lined skirt.
 Hubs took these photos on Easter evening.  I wore this crazy blue skirt to church, with bow (and got many compliments!), but thought something a bit more casual was in order for dinner with neighbors.
 It's a bit wrinkled but you get the idea.  The pattern is Butterick 5619.  The skirt is a great A-line that I've used before for a denim version.  I've only ever made the skirt from this pattern, but I keep eyeing that sheath dress.
 I purchased the fabric at a new local shop, Gigi's Fabric Shop.  The fabric is from the London Calling collection by Robert Kauffman.  The fabrics seam  pretty Liberty-inspired.  It feels like a cotton lawn and is a bit sheer, so I lined the skirt with white cotton.
Overall, I am happy with this comfortable little skirt for spring.
