Based on BWOF 01/09 112 I made this skirt during winter but couldn’t take pictures until I found my camera during the holiday cleanup. This skirt has an awesome shape and sits really nicely when worn. I love the 8 piece waistband however I felt that it needed a little more support than the facings included in the pattern offered so I interfaced the fashion fabric and created a waistband lining out of a stiff cotton fabric which I also interfaced and then applied boning to the lining at each of the seams on the waistband. I also removed about an inch from each side at the centre back and tapered to nothing at the join of the skirt and the waistband. I find the that light boning adds so much more support and comfort.
I used a stretch polyester blend with a raised webbing pattern across the surface from Tessuti Fabrics. The fabric is quite thick and has a lot of stretch. If I made this skirt again I would use a fabric without any stretch as it required extra interfacing to get the waistband to work without stretching out of shape at the top.
