I had wanted ot make a simple black skirt that would go with everything but I just couldn’t find the right pattern.
The bubble skirt pattern is just perfect. I changed the pleats slightly and made two of them instead of one. I added black satin piping on the pocket seams and satin belt loops.
I would have liked it to be higher waisted as I mostly wear it with tops tucked into it. But I already took the sides in about 1/2″ on each side and I think it’s good enough. The pattern is actually cut on the hips so I may add a waist band next time.
I also love the dress based on the same pattern. It is definitely on my (very long) to do list!
