Closely fitted, high waisted, below knee cap length skirt with triple back pleat. I love a multi-pleated kick pleat! Lined in silk dupione.

Material Notes

Heatherd cashmere, very drapey. Silk dupione lining to add structure.

    Perfectly beautiful! The yoke is great! I really like the self-fringe, too. Great idea.

      I’m addicted to self made trim. I can’t resist deconstructing the fabric to see what gives it charactor. Thanks for your kind words, all the way from the rainforest. Cool!

    Thank you MartinK! It was a joy to wear this suit. Unfortunately, I finished it in February, so the wearing season was short. Next year!
