[Disclaimer: sorry about the awful blurry pics…it was a really dark miserable day with NO natural light!!]
I’m not-so-sure about this skirt…it didn’t really work out the way i thought. I had wanted to make a tweed skirt with leather trim, but i think it might have looked better with just the waistband and part of the yoke, rather than the entire top of the skirt. If you squint it looks like a Barbie doll abdomen (you know, like a tanned plastic crotch…not really what i was going for, as you can imagine).
Pattern is from January 2011 Burdastyle magazine and i thought it would be perfect for the tweed-skirt-with-trim idea….buuuuut, i’m just not-so-sure. I’m also not-so-sure about the godet pleat in the back instead of a split. I don’t hate it…i’m just not-so-sure i like it.
I do love the fabric though!!
tweed and faux leather (pleather..lol)
