Lucinda Skirt from BeMyGoth

Lucinda Skirt from BeMyGoth

Sewn by: Amy Mayen
Photographed by: An 8 year old with more skills than me

Well guys, I sewed another Lucinda skirt and I’m just now getting to show you. I’ve been wanting to get photos forever! Today, my lovely daughter agreed to take some photos for me. They aren’t perfect, but honestly, I think she does as well or better than I do!

I used a vintage, watercolor floral fabric from the stash. My favorite feature of this skirt is the pleated pocket. I added some tiny ric rac to eccentuate the pocket detail. The waist is structured like a corset, which is a great bonus. (Helped conceal the Chicago dog and tots I just ate :)

You can get your Lucinda skirt pattern at the BeMyGoth pattern shop, and get the behind the scenes tutorials on the BeMyGoth blog. There’s a free lace top pattern available now, so go print it out and see how nice these PDFs are!

You can see my first Lucinda here. It’s a mini! (Don’t be scared, I’m not wearing it!)

Why am I a poised, confident woman in real life, then the camera comes on and all of a sudden I’m an awkward teenager again?

I sorta think I look cool in this one above. I was inspecting my dirty lenses.

This is my entry for the pencil skirt challenge!

This skirt is featured at ClaireJustine oxox!!

With love til’ next time,

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    You, my dear, are incredibly talented…and I suspect have launched your daughter into a career in fashion photography! The skirt is beautiful. And, I love how you have paired everything together. I tend to dress with style but quite safe…I am impressed with your look.

    You look great!!! Gorgeous fabric you’ve used. I’m most uncomfortable when the camera comes out for my blog.

    Amy, you look amazing! It’s so nice to see you in front of the camera. I love this skirt, and the added details. Ric rac is so well suited to vintage fabric. These are the kinds of details that you just don’t get from skirts bought at retail stores. Best of luck in the pencil skirt challenge!

    Looking good lady. I become impossibly dorky when taking pictures- I’m terrified I actually look that odd in real life. I prefer to believe it is camera induced….

    Your daughter did a great job taking pictures! The skirt is very pretty, very summer ready (this is something I would wear) & LOVE that it has pockets too; so practical, don’t know why but I love skirts and dresses with pockets so much! :-) btw, you look very pretty and like your last picture too! :-)
