This skirt was partly inspired by a fantastic high waist skirt pattern I snagged when Mom and I were thrifting earlier this month, and by Gertie’s stylish bow skirt (http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/2010/03/emma-outfit.html). I have long been contemplating the merit of bows on skirts and Gertie’s creation and the arrival of this pattern just cinched it for me. I ended up only using the pattern for the basic skirt pieces, and free-forming my own bow, but it turned out pretty darn cute!
I used a steel blue cotton twill for the outer fabric, and then lined it (using this method: http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/4971/a-shortcut-to-great-linings) with a rayon lining (my favorite). I really love the super curvy fit (although it’s still a bit big over the hips for me; I have really weirdly shaped hips!), the high waist that cinches, and the way it moves when I walk. hehe!
