Moving along to the next piece in our Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection, we come to the voile maxi skirt. This skirt is from our 2nd look, Aquatic Countryside. Annie, our Modern Chloris, wore this boat neck top and voile maxi skirt layered over the tankini we made for this look.
We used the Paneled Sunsuit pattern from Call Ajaire. If this skirt looks familiar it’s because we made a denim version. We reviewed the pattern in depth in our previous blog post about this pattern. We turned to this pattern again because it’s one of Annie’s favorite. Her favorite features are the pockets and the elastic waist for comfort. She also loves the maxi length.
The fabric is Kladi UnderShadow in voile. This, like all the patterned pieces we made for our Modern Chloris collection except the jacket, come from the Skopelos fabric line designed by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. This probably our favorite print from the whole line, evidenced by the fact that we used it twice. (Did you spot the it in the other colorway in the mini Senna Tote?) Katarina Roccella was inspired by flowers on the island of Skopelos, and judging from her photos of them on Instagram, her fabric is a perfect imitation!
We’ve used voile from Art Gallery Fabrics once before for another maxi skirt, and it’s the most lovely fabric! It’s light and flowy, and seems to float along when you walk. Because it’s slightly translucent, wearing a slip under this skirt is necessary. Unless of course it’s being worn as a swimsuit coverup like Annie did for the Modern Chloris Aquatic Countryside look!
Here is a flat lay photo to illustrate how well the maxi skirt goes with everything else in the mini collection. This skirt is just about perfect for fall. Though we didn’t add them to the collage, the leggings match this skirt and would transition it into fall and winter. Especially with that jacket…sigh!
We hope you’re not getting tired of these posts from the Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection. There are only 2 pieces left in the collection, and then we’ll move on!
