Every girl needs a fun and flirty black skirt, so here is my version of the A-plus A-line skirt.
I used black gabardine with a shiny appearance, and finished the hem with silk bias tape. I also added pockets on the sides.
I wanted a special touch so I used faux leather to make a belt with a bow.
This was my entry for the ‘Show us your A-line skirt’ contest, and I got second place! I’m very happy! :)
Gabardine, silk bias tape, faux leather.
