I made this skirt using a vintage pattern from 1973, Style 4218 and some beautiful abstract printed silk georgette from Mood Fabrics. As it is semi sheer I lined it in a plain green georgette. The combination of the two fabrics was a little tricky to handle but I suceeded in the end and love the fullness and movement of the finished skirt. Full construction details can be found on my blog here http://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/printed-silk-maxi-skirt-and-bamboo.html (I also made the top which is actually the Nettie bodysuit from Closet Case Files in a super soft bamboo knit!)
