I made this little black skirt (as necessary as a little black dress) out of a 1/2 yard remnant of needlecord fabric. It has some elastane, and it distorts easily, which made it a nightmare to sew the lining inside the hip-yoke properly and transformed a quick’n’easy project into a pulling-my-hair-painfully project. But it’s a really versatile skirt and I have worn it a lot, especially during winter.
Black needlecord (cotton and elastane, I think), black acetate lining, small black invisible zipper.
