Donovan Sewalong: Finished Donovan!

Who doesn’t want to sew a linen skirt in the summertime? This Donovan Skirt in washed linen from Blackbird Fabrics is such a lovely summer piece and will surely get loads of wear for years to come. Chloe is modeling this Donovan paired with a simple knit tee. Donovan also looks great with a tank or bodysuit, a cropped top (like Ashton), or a tucked in blouse!
