A simple, casual, fully lined skirt that I can wear to work with tights. Here’s to casual separates for my everyday wardrobe! : )
Pattern is Simplicity 1717, View C, Size 12, with “slim” back pieces. (The pattern comes with slim, average, and curvy options.)
Modifications: For aesthetics, I added a full lining, added belt loops, and added 1 inch to the hem. For fit, I removed about an inch (lengthwise) in the front waistline area and added a 3/4-inch-wide panel on each side to make the skirt sit lower on my hips.
Lots more photos and details of the alterations on my blog:
Shell: 100% cotton twill. Lining: Bemberg rayon.
