My friend and I found a charcoal wool flannel w/ silver flowers printed on it. Since she’s a novice, we sewing both our skirts together. This was hers.
She’s very short, so it’s very short. But the godet begins at about the right spot.
One thing this pattern doesn’t make clear before you buy it—it intends you to have a Petersham ribbon waistline—which is NOT really a good look for this fabric. We turned the ribbon to the inside and tacked it in place; we didn’t realize the pattern also contained facing pieces that we could have used instead.
She had trouble getting the godet sewn in smoothly at the time—we decided to live with it.
I wanted to line it bcs the inside of the wool would catch on tights; I think we should have inter-lined it instead (sewed the lining to the skirt pieces before assembly, but after the darts and after the zipper)
