Anyway, here is the photo of me wearing the recently sewn skirt. I'll recap the project for those of you who have only read this page. For those of you that have followed the blog thus far, I hope I am not boring you!
This was the original pattern (New Look 6103). I modified the pattern which has a small yoke waistband with facing. I did not have enough material to cut this style, and I also like waistbands as I have small hips and if a skirt sits too low it tends to slip down, or sit at a strange angle - up at the back and down at the front. The rear of the skirt is suppose to have a large inverted pleat, but I decided on a kick pleat because of the limited amount of fabric I had available. Low waistlines also sit at my widest part - the tummy - but I do still have a small indentation (luckily) at my waist - I like to show my smallest part if wearing a top tucked in.
This is my version, as I have previously shown on this blog - being worn by my dear dummy (who is yet to be given a name).
I would wear this skirt everyday, on the weekend if it something less casual was needed, and on a special night out dressed up with stockings, heels and sparkly jewellery. I would feel comfortable in the last look going from home, or to go to the shops) to see what is going on in my husband's office, or even going straight from any of those activities, with a nice jacket, to dinner. I do like my garments to be multi purpose and multi functional.
