A self drafted a-line skirt from a very strange fabric I found at the market, it’s two layers (black and white) that are connected in some parts and not in others. It could be reversible if it weren’t for some wrinkling in the white on black side. I used the burdastyle tutorials for drafting a skirt block and converting it to an a-line skirt and I’m really happy with the fit. The strange fabric made it a bit difficult for me to make a neat hem, but I don’t think it’s very noticeable. I used a black and white dotted bias tape for the waist facing and seam binding and I hope it will make this skirt very strong, because it’s really nice to wear and will hopefully get a lot of use
