Description

Anchors away!

I just barely managed to squeeze this skirt out of an old remnant of duchesse satin from my stash. I didn’t have enough for the waistband facings, so I cut up an old white bedsheet and used some heavy interfacing to make it hold the shape.

The ribbon on the hem was equally a design-feature as a way to recue the hem , as I found it next to impossible to hem the skirt invisibly. I like it though, as it gives to skirt a preppy/nautical feeling, that I really, really like.

The pattern is from Burda EasyFasion S/S 2009, but I had to shorten it 2 cm because of fabric shortage.

Material Notes

duchesse satin in a dusty rose color, a white bedsheet, invisible zipper, black satin ribbon in 2 widths, thread (white for construction, black for the ribbon), interfacing.

Difficulty

Intermediate

    It looks adorable, i think the fact that its shorter, really adds a “modern” feel and keeps it from looking great :)
