retro secretary skirt

Added Nov 5, 2008

Tokyo, Japan






made my kasia skirt at last! i started on this a month ago, but kept being interrupted, but i finished it just yesterday. i like it a lot. i placed zipper in the back instead of front. it made more sense to me because having a zipper in the front would make me feel like a man:p

Material Notes

tweed, polyester lining, buttons, hook and eye, zipper





kasia for pattern! thank you:)

    hi nikkishell, i love the pattern too! its just perfect for work. im thinking of making another one in black, and instead of button, add a sash and tie it in front or something. there are so many variations that we can do!

    Great Kasia! I love this pattern. I personally prefer the zip at the front since the flap hides it :)

    thank you all! Fordelis, yes, i completely agree! or maybe left hand side? front zipper just doesnt make sense to me!

    It’s really “secretary” skirt :) Very nice! I also think it’s better to place a zip on back :)
