VintageModern Design Challenge, One-Seam Skirt Bedecked with...
Added Mar 12, 2012
I chose to work with the one seam skirt pattern from Indygo Junction. I loved the pattern, such a great use of one yard of fabric. I made several changes to take it from looking dated to looking beautifully vintage inspired. I updated the hem, the original pattern is assuming a finished skirt length of 27 inches. I took it up 4 inches, so it just covers my knees. I also used elastic instead of a zipper for the waistband for a more comfortable fit. I also added bias tape to the flaps of the pockets and of course a big beautiful satin bow to the cummerbund. I love the one-seam skirt with a few modifications, it is the perfect pattern for a vintage inspired skirt that is fashionable today.

The black and white fabric is a thrifted light woolen material of unknown fiber content. The bow is made of satin. I also used 2 inch black elastic and black bias tape.
