Skirts- A Love Affair Part-2




























I forgot to do a pattern review when I posted earlier.

Pattern: Self drafted, TNT pattern. The black and purple skirts are straight skirts. The hound tooth was my version of a pencil skirt.

Fabrics: Black suiting fabric from my stash
Purple print- decorator fabric I bought at the fabricwarehouse in Belleville, NJ
Hound tooth fabric- was a size 3x skirt that was giving to me 3-years.
Lining fabric- green batiste from Metro Textiles ( $1.00/yd) black and purple batiste
from my stash.
Other Stats: 8 inch centered zipper, fully lined skirts. The hound tooth skirt I made bias binding and sewed it to the waist, the black and purple skirt were finished with a peter sham waist treatment.

Hey, a month of skirts might not be a bad idea! I'm jealous - I can't wait till I can get the fit down on a pencil skirt and sew up a bunch for myself. Yours look great.
