8 gore skirt with faced waistband. I didn’t have enough fabric to make it as long as the blue skirt with suffolk puff trim so I lowered the top to make it sit lower on the hips.
Pattern was traced from an existing skirt. I made small adjustments to the fit, added belt loops and lowered the top of the skirt.
Next time I would either slightly gather the trim or put little pleats where it meets a seam in the skirt.
