Description

Designed in fall of 2008 for a school fashion show, this 5 gore panel skirt with a sweep train was the production of my desire to have an evening skirt made of denim. Topstitching down both sides of each seam. The original busseling (shown) has since been changed and embroidery added, and pictures will be coming soon of the end result!

Material Notes

Stretch denim. Dark blue and black cotton thread. 8" zipper.
