My A-plus A-line black skirt

Added Oct 21, 2009

Ros, Argentina






Every girl needs a fun and flirty black skirt, so here is my version of the A-plus A-line skirt.
I used black gabardine with a shiny appearance, and finished the hem with silk bias tape. I also added pockets on the sides.
I wanted a special touch so I used faux leather to make a belt with a bow.

This was my entry for the ‘Show us your A-line skirt’ contest, and I got second place! I’m very happy! :)

Material Notes

Gabardine, silk bias tape, faux leather.




Garment Type
Classic, Romantic
Cotton, Leather/Fur, Other

    I love your version, when I first saw the skirt I have to admit I wasn’t that attracted to it, but seeing your spin on it I really want to make one now!!! Thanks for showing your talent :)

    So are the pockets just placed below the zipper?!? I love this skirt, and you’ve inspired me to make it (with pockets, I hope!)
