Description

I love the shape of this 4 gore skirt with its godet hem from BWOF 11/2008 (its no.110). I get the feeling that the godets on mine are not fluttering the way should. Maybe the fabric choice is a bit heavy. The form hugging shape of the skirt makes it challenging to walk and move around. Try walking keeping you knees together and you’ll get the idea. Its a great little skirt to go out in but I certainly won’t be wearing it to the office. If I were to make it again I think I’d use a light weight fabric with a bit of stretch.

    it’s so annoying when you’ve got something so lovely and it’s difficult to wear. Hope you manage to wear it out loads.

    Feminine and delicate… I really like it! I hope you’ll wear it a lot. It’s funny – the other day I was thinking of making the same skirt myself :-).
