I'd toyed with the idea of a full skirt, but I thought it would obscure the print, then I thought maybe a jacket, but I knew I'd hardly ever wear it. I settled on a pencil skirt. Here it is:
I used Sew Vera Venus' skirt drafting tutorial, which is really easy to follow - go check it out! And in order not to interrupt that fab pattern, I overlapped the side seams and treated the top curve as a dart, so there was only one seam at the back:
I also added a lapped split at the back:
Note to self: be more careful when placing the patterns in the future so as to avoid phrases like 'Look at me!!' appearing in the middle of your bottom.
The top of the split is finished off with a red arrowhead:
And to finish it all, I added a light poly lining attached at the waist and hand sewn around the split:
Now I just have to find a suitable event to wear this skirt to - maybe cocktails with the Spoolettes?
See you soon!
