Now that I am writing this post I realize that the images are blurred. Well this is because being on holiday I am using some unorthodox methods to resize images. To add to a blogger's misery, a full day of wearing is visible on the linen shirt
and my hair. But before I wait another month to post better quality images... errh, I love this skirt, and the combination with a linen shirt.
A few words about the construction. I could not resist and underlined the skirt with silk organza. Honestly, it was not necessary, but I often feel like a couture machine: before I had time to think the underlining is already there. What's done is done - the underlining doesn't do any harm really.
I lined the skirt with navy china silk - it does feel nicer with lining.
As for the pattern, I eliminated the side seam, leaving only side darts. This way I didn't have to worry about pattern matching on the side. There is only one seam, in the back.
Finally, I made a faced waistband, with the inner side lined with china silk as well.
I think this skirt will be worn a lot. With shirts and, later, when the fall comes, with nice navy sweaters. And you know what, I packed mostly me-made clothes for two weeks holiday. It is a first for me! A matching wardrobe full of nice hand-made clothes. I am so proud of myself :)
What did you wear last week?
