I made this skirt with the left over drill from my Pumice Peter Pan Trench. I altered the pattern a little by omitting the pockets and gathers, moving the zipper to the side, and narrowing the waistband. I really like how it turned out and am happy with the fit! Believe it or not I can sit in it and when I get up there are no wrinkles!!!
This piece is super high waisted, with a slight back slit. I think the mock pockets give it a slight Mod, geometric look. And the color is turning out to be very versatile.
There are so few photos of this piece because my camera dropped and was fatally injured during the “shoot” :( I am going to wait until my return to the states to get her fixed so in the meantime my projects are piling up without documentation.
