Tori Hall's Cleo by Made By Rae
This is my 3rd Cleo Skirt that I've made for myself and I LOVE it! This is 100% rayon in the Cotton+Steel Magic Forest Tulips fabric. I was lucky to get my hands on some last year and I've been wanting to make a skirt like this ever since!
I knew I really wanted the skirt to have an elastic waistband in back, so I just used the Cleo pattern and hacked a button placket in front! I used the Beatrix (also a Made by Rae pattern) placket measurements, and just figured it out as I went.
I knew since it was an elastic back that the front waist button would pull, so I just avoided that problem and top stitched the waistband with two rows of stitching, and sewed a button on to make it look functional. I love it!
