This skirt was inspired by the designs of Ulyana Sergeenko ( http://thehomeblues.blogspot.co.il/2012/07/my-russian-blues.html & http://pinterest.com/Milenushka/my-russian-blues/). I wanted to make something with a Russian flair but a bit more flattering to my figure than the full skirts Ulyana wears . This is my pattern, based on a self drafted block, the skirt ends about 3 inches above the natural waist line and the seam lines are eliminated to reduce bulk. It has an underlined facing for the waist and is fully lined. More pictures and details in my blog – http://thehomeblues.blogspot.co.il/2012/09/the-russian-couture-inspired-skirt.html
p.s the blouse is vintage (Mom’s closet:)) and the shoes are by my friend, the talented Svetlana Kletina. (http://www.sk-shoes.com/)
