Here is skirt #2- a simple black skirt made out suiting fabric. I bought the fabric five years ago. Skirt #1 and #2 were made using the same technique I described in my previous post, except that i used an unconventional material for the lining, nylon curtain panels that i had store among my fabric collection. I was inspired to use this unconventional material for two reasons: first, i joined a sewing chat group last week and one of the ladies is the moderator for a project " recycling old clothes into something new". This is where i got my idea to reuse this unconventional material as a lining. Second, the black fabrics has a beautiful feel and it really did not need a lining, however i feel that lining a skirt (depending on the type of fabric) takes your sewing to the next level and it gives it a couture feel. The result was great. I gave me the comfort i wanted and the unconventional lining fabrics did not change the feel, weight or look of the fabric.
I am going to take pictures of the wrong side of the skirt so you can see it.
