Description

Something I have been meaning to do for such a long time. This isn’t the most interesting skirt on the block, but the learning curve has been fabulous. Now that I have mastered how to make a fitted skirt I hope to experiment with added features like a walking slit, hight waist, longer and more tapered shape… and perhaps turning those darts into piped princess seams.

I have included step by step instructions on my blog if you are interested.

Material Notes

cheap lightweight suiting fabric, synthetic polka dot two tone lining

Difficulty

Intermediate
