Description

I have a fondness for stripes because they have a way of showing off the architectural elements that I like best.

I made this skirt from six straight-of-grain rectangular panels alternated with six bias-cut triangular panels.

The waistband is nothing more than a straight-of-grain binding.

The invisible zipper falls at a slight angle as it is inserted into one of the skirt’s existing seams.

Material Notes

*Cotton/Lycra shirting in white with black pinstripes of varying widths
*Invisible zipper

    Very interesting. Simple yet somewhat sophisticated. I’d like to see on worn.

    I like your idea on how to hide the zipper. I’ll have to remember that.
