Auburn, United S...
A self-drawing A-Line skirt. The black lace is overlaid on gray wool, then sewn together as a single material. An invisible zipper is inserted at the waist on the left side.
Although some issues remain for the next project (e.g., better matching the scallops of lace at the side where the front and back parts join, etc.), this skirt turned-out pretty close to how I imagined it would and I am quite happy with the result. I am looking forward to wearing this skirt at upcoming holiday events.
The base skirt is gray wool and the black lace is polyester. Lining is cupro.
