Description

One more pencil skirt after the golden one, basically it’s the same pattern but I brought the princess line closer to the middle in the front and I added pockets. The fabric is also from Paron (NYC) and has golden threads to it even though you can’t really see it in the pictures. Pictures were taken by the New York Public Library before we got hit by Sandy… I was very fortunate to have power all along.

More pictures and details on my blog!

Material Notes

Blend from Paron NYC with golden thread

      Thanks! Piping is quite easy with just a regular zipper foot.

    Lovely skirt, and I am glad to hear you survived the storm with power! I love to see these small changes illustrated i.e. the princess line brought in&the different fabric, I compared the pics from your previous skirt on your blog and it makes a big difference. Both are beautiful!

      Thank you so much! I really believe it looks more balanced to have the lines more towards the center and elongates the silhouette better…
