This softly A-lined skirt is a real favourite of mine as it is very warm and comfortable (fully lined, of course), looks businesslike enough for work without being boring and is made of an unusual fabric bought in Amsterdam a few years ago. It has two tiers at the bottom (see detail picture). Looks great with boots and opaque tights and a chunky knit as well as with with sheer tights, killer heels and a smart blouse.
The pattern used comes from a 2006 issue of Knip Mode, a Dutch sewing magazine. Very suitable for beginners who want to make a simple skirt with a little twist.
Skirt would have loved a gentle press before going on camera as you can see but alas, it is of course Sunday morning ;-)
Approx. 80 cm of main fabric, 150cm wide (very suitable for woolens, felt, corduroy, velvet too)
Approx 65cm of lining, 140 wide
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
