Drape Drape vol 2 no 14 gather drape skirt

A word of warning: if you decide to make this skirt, do check the size very carefully. It’s very fitted, which it should be, but if your hips are 92cm’s (like mine) and you decide to make it a size right in between M (88 cm hips) and M/L (92cm hips) because that size has worked well for you with other patterns from the same book, then think again. Make a M/L.

Now that I’ve overcome that little problem (by cuttina a new, oversized backpiece), I love this skirt! It looks almost identical to the skirt in the book (the last picture if anyone wondered), it’s really flattering to wear (believe me, I look really bad in some pencil skirts) and despite being narrow it’s actually comfortable.

    Wow, this one is my favorite because it is not made out of jersey (hence the fitting issue perhap?) The wool fabric makes the difference and add timeless elegance. Drape Drape 2 will definetly stand next to Drape Drape 1 on my library shelves! You should get a commission from the writer for advertising the book so well!

    This skirt looks absolutely ravishing. It definitely makes it on my much too long to-do-list.

    wow you’ve been on a sewing binge! I really love everything you’ve made from this book. I just ordered a bunch of jersey online and I’ve never sewn a knit before so I am very very curious about this book!!

    So pretty! I might actually try that kind of pencil skirt, The ruffle could hide some of my bits…

    I can imagine if a heavy weight jersey was used the smaller size would work. I want to make this now!
