Skirt Embellishment

As I told you guys in my last post, I feel like there's something missing in my Mystery Pocket Skirt. It's a little too.... navy. A reader suggested I top-stitch some of the seams of the skirt, but I'm so AFRAID of top-stitching! I always worry that after putting so much effort into a garment I'll ruin it with my bad top-stitching. Do you ever feel like this? You feel that's something's missing but don't want to over do it at the same time.

I thought about adding gold buttons at the top and bottom of the slits, but am still unsure if I like the look. This is where you guys come in! what do you think?

What do you think? ( I know the buttons are kind of awry, I couldn't get them to sit straight because of the shanks!)

Also, I thought of a fun idea if I ever decide on making this skirt again, it'll be really cool to make the back of the pocket in a contrasting color so that it'll pop just through the slit.. what do you think?


  1. i love the buttons! my topstitching turns out wonky so often i can relate ;)
    i love the idea of contrasting fabric for the pockets! do it! it would be super super cute :)

  2. oh, another thought: maybe hand stitching/embroydering around the pockets? it might look cute but it might make the skirt look too cutsie ;)

    1. thats a great idea thanks! I think I may end up sewing buttons for the time being but we'll see! I love the idea of contrasting fabric for the pockets too! but I don't know if I see myself making this skirt again!
