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.
