In the Name of Pleather

1/2 circle skirt made from stretchy Dolce and Gabbana Pleather i found on sale a few months back. Took me a while to get over the stretch factor to realise the fabric had a really lovely drape. The 1/2 circle skirt was born!

I used an exposed metal zip at the back to close and some plain cotton I had lying around to stop the waist from getting to stretchy and loose its shape and to add support to the zip.

    Nope, don’t even think my machine has one! Just a zipper foot and a normal one. The bottom didn’t need hemming since it doesn’t fray and i just top stitched the waist :)
