Drape Skirt: Capture the Moment

Added Feb 12, 2013

A very figure-hugging skirt that has a lovely detail with witty “cones”. The skirt has an elegant touch because of the beautiful jumbo pleated drapes on the sides.

There is a metal zipper at the back. I put my own little touch to the design by adding a small bow at the waist line. I was unable to get Petersham ribbon so I put on a regular waistband and fully lined.

I love the look and wear it with an asymmetrical top. I think the two looks goes great together.

Do you agree or disagree?

    Another WOW! I love this skirt. Was the pattern also from a Burda magazine? You really did a great job on both pieces. Wish you a lot of joy and compliments wearing them.
