This is a tapered tweed skirt that called for a mid-knee length. I made it a little longer – below the calf for those cold winter days. The pattern also called for four darts in the front and back. I eliminated two darts in the back to allow for a more comfortable fit in the waist. I added interfacing to the areas where the darts were sewn to add strength to the fabric in those areas. Interfacing was also added to the waistband to prevent rolling and to the zipper seam. Once the seams were stitched I serged the edges to prevent fraying. To prevent bulkiness in the waist – the waistband edge was serged and stitched in the ditch instead of turning the edge under and slipstitching.
Fabric, interfacing, thread, hook and eye, zipper, zipper foot, basting tape for the zipper and Butterick Pattern B5391.
