This skirt was drafted using the methods describe in Metric Pattern Cutting by Winifred Aldrich. The fabric is an Amy Butler twill and it was a pleasure sewing with it.
Features of the skirt:
- A- Line
- 2" Facing at the waistline
- 9" invisible zipper
- Patch pockets (with top inserted into waistband and side inserted into side seam)
- Really really good fit!
As you can tell from this view, I did not match the pattern at the seams, which is something I need to learn how to do.
I thought I would go into more depth on how I made this skirt, but I decided to wait for the next one so that I would have a better idea what I was doing. I already have a plan for the next iteration, so hopefully I will remember to take lots of pictures during the process.
