Using the Obi Belt pattern, whipped up this gathered pencil skirt
Originally planned this skirt to be full and gathered, but instead began removing the volume, resulting in an emergency back slit!
Also had to sew in some darts after attaching the skirt to the belt, adding a nice detail I think of faux pockets, because it was too gathered.
Herringbone cotton, light weight – Fusible interfacing in waist band (first time use!) and black bias tape, slit in back was needed after the first fitting, so had to open the seam and finish with tape
First time using bias tape too!
