Two outfits out of one skirt!
A-line with modified seams including pockets. My own pattern, I’m kind of proud of it ! My inspiration was a skirt from “comptoir des cotonniers” which had those seams going down diagonally (but no pockets!) .
Black velvet with rayon lining.
I used the pattern that goes with the “01/2012 Panties” (I can’t find it on the website), it was not very easy because the fabric is a very delicate wool and it moves all the time…
Also I unpicked the darts in the back, because it ended up too tight and it looked like the fabric was going to rip off.
Nothing much to say there… Polyester that looks like silk ;)
Nice but I think it might look much better on someone less busty.
