Newport, Rhode I...
Straight fitted skirt from 60’s High School Home Ec Pattern. There are four darts on front & 4 on back-8 total, for a perfect 60’s fit. Zipper & kick pleat in the back plus a waistband with button closure. The waist measured 22 1/2" to 23"… Jessi models it so well. Finishing the kick pleat was a challenge-almost needed my Home Ec instructor! I treated all seams with hem tape or flatlock stitching (which I did not have in the 60’s). My 70’s Viking 190 does have that ability-a favorite overcast stitch.
Easy, easy, although I added as much stitching as I could for durability. Keep thinking I need a closet full. Jessi took this one with her, which was sweetest gesture for effort.
Cotton ticking striped fabric, 7" zipper, hem tape & button & thread
