Since I made this skirt for my Burdastyle Couture Challenge, an overview post appeared there, which I will repost shortly. As for step-by-step tutorials I've included the links at the end of the post. Please forgive me if I am slow (my scalloped dress and the beaded skirt are not forgotten either) - family is my priority right now.
So, a few words about the skirt. I love the flirty godet, which breaks up the otherwise formal (=dull) tweed skirt. And, if it was not enough, I added the contrasting lining. The color picks some threads in the tweed - you can see it below. All fabrics are from Mood, bought a while ago. The yellow china silk was used as underlining, and the raspberry charmeuse for the lining.
The lining again :)

Ok, I could not resist showing you the lining again, I really love the contrast. Check out my BurdaStyle post for the construction overview.
