A high-waisted pencil skirt with front button closure and pocket flaps.
I cut the facings the same length as the yoke, and made boning channels to insert boning in all seams. I also lengthened the skirt 3cm, and inserted lining.
It fits really well with no alterations, and now I’m thinking about which colour use for my next one!
Further details are on my blog
Viscose bemberg lining
Lightweight knit fusible
Tagua Nut buttons
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
