A-line button-down high-waisted skirt with boned waistband and decorative pocket flaps (no pockets)
I am calling it a Franken-skirt because it’s made out of two patterns: the skirt part is from a vintage McCall 5192 pattern and the waistband is from BWOF 2009-01-109.
The fashion fabric is a silk/wool blend with a beautiful drape and lining is 100% rayon. The waistband is interfaced with muslin and I added boning to keep it sturdy.
Buttons are real horn.
I really, really like this skirt, it has a bit of that 70’s flare that I am very much found of. The length is a tricky one ( a little lower than below the knee) but I think it works with boots.
