Description

Based on a basic skirt pattern I learned to make when I took sewing lessons, it is my second attempt. First one (in grey wool) didn’t go so well. I had no idea what to do with this particular fabric when I received it but my mother instantly saw it paired with a black cashmere sweater for an original, yet professional and formal, evening style. I like the timeless appeal of pencil skirts.

Material Notes

This is synthetic silk a friend sent me from China. Although the fabric frays awfully, it is a real pleasure to work with it. It is slightly textured, thick and a little stretchy and falls in place wonderfully.
