New York, New Yo...
I’m really loving fun and funky fabrics lately!
I used Burda 8176 (paper pattern purchased from JoAnns) as the starting pattern for this skirt. I adjusted the length so it was slightly above the knee and drafted and added my own underskirt/lining as a preventative measure for windy days. You know what I’m talking about! Lol. This was my first time drafting and adding a lining.
You can read more about my sewing process and find a mini-review of the pattern I used in this blog post
fabric, thread, invisible zipper
