I actually made this skirt pattern two years ago in grey with black pipping. It was one of my first projects and I remember adding the interfacing to the lining instead of the outer fabric. It took me about a month to make. This one came together in a couple days.
The contrasting pleather panels remind me of the Stella McCartney silhouette dress. I think the next time I make this skirt, I’ll make the hip panels smaller and more curvier to add more of a shapely illusion. I would also shorten the waistband facing because I feel like it kind of overpowers my small body! I already shortened the skirt pattern by 2″.
I’m slowly overcoming my zipper fear! Exposed zippers are my favorite way to practice!
One of my favorite parts about sewing is being able to add fun facings and linings! I decided not to completely line this one because I felt it would be too hot and sticky with the pleather and denim.
I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out! It’s a great transitional piece for the fall!
