Its funny to me at least that when I was in my early 20s I was anti many trends including but not limited to capri pants. Now in my mid thirties I'm willing to just go with it a lot more. After all trends can be fun and realistically I do not baby my clothes so most things only last through a few years of pretty consistent wash and wear. With that in mind I present you with the high low hem chevron skirt.
Simplicity 1616 for the skirt. I know I could have drafted it myself but I got the pattern when it was on sale for $1.00 and I think my time is worth more then that. Mostly I'm pleased with the pattern. It has a very wide fold over waistband that I have mixed feelings about at best. I think in person its OK but it does add some bulk to the midsection that I could do without. The shirt is old and a size too big but it looks a bit better in person too I promise.
So I'm not sure how many seasons I will get out of a high low hem chevron skirt but I'm still glad that I made this one. Its cute, comfy, and a lot of fun. As for the pattern the only change I made was adding a bit of clear elastic at the waist. I may make one of the other views at some point but I do not plan on making this one again.
