So after finishing V1174 in this stunning fabric, I still had a bit left over, so I thought it would make for a nice summer skirt. I also LOVED the piping detail from V1174, so I managed to find a way to work that in too.
I’m used an old Style pattern (4597), and am really happy with the results, my only complaint is that the piping is a teency bit too wide.
