I got hopefull once I saw this pattern at the store: I didn’t think twice, I just bought it at the time.
But at the end It didn’t go strictly according to the main standart I was gonna use on this dress but fortunately I could fix the problem: I had removed way to much volume on the bottom so I couldn’t either move and close the ziper! And I must say, even after this huge inconvinient, it ended up better than I expected. I had to apply some black serge tissue on the sides from the hip line to the bottom of the skirt. The way how the plain black on the sides reconciles with the retro pattern that stands in the middle creates the ilusion of what I should call “false pencil skirt” and it gives me a lot more movement freedom.
