skirt project worn 2 ways
I made this skirt from a Vogue Pattern:1292.
I made it over the course of a few days because just as I was starting my jacket project my iron broke. Well you can't steam interfacing without an iron. So I pulled out this fabric and made this skirt. I had to shorten length of the skirt before I added the band of the origami pleats, I lined it with slip like knit material to give it enough body. What was most frustrating was that none of the fabric stores in my area had ANY striped knit fabric. This is how it is featured on the pattern cover...
Anyways look one on the left turned out to be too light weight for the sudden cold front we had today in the 50's. So I went inside and added the sweater and jeans jacket. I refuse to put winter shoes back on so the sandals stayed. This style skirt is way outside of my usual comfort zone. Do you like it??
