As in the quintessential skirt – or a typical example of skirts currently hanging in my wardrobe.
This version was made from a piece of rayon/cotton blend left over from a yet to be blogged jacket. I didn’t have quite enough fabric, hence the black band, but I actually like the contrast quite a lot, it breaks up the blue.
I did the usual floating waistband which suits my non-waist much better but for some reason it’s a bit big so I have to keep pulling it up, so I will increase the seam allowance a tad. Once I put the belt on it was ok.
I had been at work all day so was looking a bit dishevelled when these photos were taken.
Here is a close up view of the skirt – unfortunately you also get a close up view of me!
