For the hottest of summer days, there is nothing more comfortable than a good skirt.  Need more of them in your wardrobe?  Simple Simon & Company is hosting a series of skirt tutorials, including this project from Jill at Homemade by Jill.  Using a doily and a little fabric, she added fancy pockets to a plain skirt.  You could also add these pockets to other garments – wouldn’t they look cute on a cardigan?  [how to make a doily pocket skirt]
