New York, New Yo...
Many of our readers decided that the Karl Lagerfeld mini skirt pattern download was far more approachable than the jacket, so we decided to make the skirt ourselves and we love it! Carol, our Partnership Manager, models this look with grace.
A plus is that this skirt has elastic in the back, you can slip it right on without the fuss of zippers or buttons. One thing we noticed though— the skirt is super short. You may want to add a couple of inches to the “Lengthen or Shorten Here” line.
1 1/4 yards (1.4 metres) self. 7/8 yard (.80 metres) 1" wide elastic. 1 8" (20cm.) zipper. 4 fabric covered buttons. 2 large sew-on snaps. Notions were purchased at Pacific Trimming Inc. in New York’s Garment District.
