Description

I made this tailored and flowy skirt to reacquaint myself with my sewing machine after a long absence, from a pattern I designed and drafted myself. The front is a basic princess-line pencil skirt, and the back has a shaped flounce framed with velvet piping. I finished the hem with lace using this technique: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/pretty-lace-hem—2

Hope you like it!
