This reversible 16 gored skirt is made from a self drafted pattern. For one side I used a striped silk duppioni fabric I picked up on a backpacking trip in Spain. I cut the gores on the bias so the stripe created a chevron and I add a 1 ½” wide strip cut on the cross grain in-between each gore pair. For the reverse side I used black cotton and added hand embroidery to each gore pare. The embroidery patterns come from Jenny Hart’s Sublime Stitching book. I finished the hem with a bias strip cut from the silk and the skirt has a front snap closure.
