Penultimate Summer Sewing aka Another Sewaholic Hollyburn Skirt…this time in linen

Hello again,

Let me start by saying that this is my last Hollyburn for a while (I promise πŸ™‚). As the seventh one it doesnt need a lot of ceremony so here it is in linen…..

Again I am more than pleased with this skirt and I still have an appetite for another Hollyburn…….

Thank you for stopping by and until next time Happy Sewing πŸ™‚

Peace and love,


Alterations to pattern: changed from straight waistband to a contoured waistband using tutorial from A Fashionable StitchΒ (I did this alteration on my third Holyburn and haven’t looked back since).

  1. It’s LOVE! Eyelet love! Really… I have a pair of blue & white eyelet shorts. Love them. Eyelet love… PERFECT skirt!

    Now. Let’s get REAL! What is lurking in your closet? I can not even imagine what is in your closet. The depth, the enormity…!!! Is there a ROOM in your home devoted to your clothes? (Wait, ask Mr SNS!) Pics please? He he…

    1. Lols! My closet is not that big at all . I didnt have that many clothes really when I started sewing – I was a serial outfit repeater so its like I am building it up now πŸ™‚ But I will definitely do a post on my closet soon. x


  2. Gorgeous! I love the fabric. It’s the perfect length and fit for you. Now you’ve got me thinking I need to add more red to my wardrobe. πŸ™‚

  3. It’s a lovely skirt, perfectly finished!
    I’d love to have a TNT pattern, I imagine it would be so easy to make something knowing it fits!
    I love your top, did you make that too?

  4. I keep thinking I need to try the Hollyburn. So many sewists love it. Did you lengthen it on any of your versions? I ask because I have had a bad experience with trying to lengthen full skirts. I think I’d rather find a midi-length pattern than try another lengthening.

    1. Its a great pattern indeed and you should absolutely go for it! It has 3 lengths – this red one is the shortest length. My recent denim one is the mid length. I have never made the longest version which I think hit just past the mid calf point. If those arent the lengths you are after there is a lengthen/shorten line you can use. X
