Description

I made this skirt from material left over from my still-to-be-completed Burberry-inspired trench coat using the skirt pattern from vintage Simplicity 6976. It was an easy pattern to sew up, and I spent the longest time trying to find the right length for the hem. I was going for a length just under the knee, where the curve of my calf comes in. This length is flattering on the leg and also matches the length calculated from the golden ratio for the ideal skirt hem. I marked the length, then added a quarter of an inch to be safe, but I still came out a bit on the short side.

Blogged here.

Material Notes

Wool gabardine in a neutral camel color for the skirt and striped Burberry rainwear for the facing. A matching camel-colored zipper was inserted in the side seam.
