This skirt is made from a very fine, stretch lycra. In retrospect, perhaps not the best fabric choice. The fabric shows every minor sewing issue and when you walk, it stretches in such a way that the fabric looks like it’s a pattern issue with pulling. Also, the fabric store I go to – you have to take your choices. I originally was looking for a stretch jersey but didn’t find anything I liked. I also had completely different colors in mind but couldn’t find the hues I wanted.
I’m not beating myself up about it. This was my 2nd stretch knit fabric garment ever and it was my own pattern.
