Green Flower Skirt

This has become one of my favorite patterns. It’s a vintage pencil skirt pattern with side darts instead of seams. This brocade fabric was leftover from another project. I liked the wrong side of the fabric as much as the right side so I decided to use both. The seam at the knee ended up giving the skirt a nice shape that I didn’t expect. I lined it with a nice black silky material that was also leftover from another past project.

    Attracts the attention! The fabric keeps the shape well and the darts provide nice fitting. Beautiful skirt

    lovely skirt, which looks great on you. I can understand that you used both sides of the material, difficult to say which one looks better :-)
