I bought an offcut of flock printed pink tweed months ago, already thinking it would be nice for a Marie skirt. Now, I finally got around to making it. I only used the front piece of the Marie pattern and made my own, slightly deeper waistband, a smooth back with darts and a small slit. I also put in a lining, which ment I got to fit a lining at a slit for the first time. It worked out in the end and I’m quite happy with the result.
