A little bit of sewing every day after work, and it’s done! The skirt, as worn by Flora.
The fabric was very easy to work with. It’s a cotton lycra shirting weight, from the Evil Fabric Queen’s Yahoo co-op. There’s a little bit of stretch, which is enough to allow room for dessert. The back has a double kick pleat, which contributes walking ease. That makes wearing it quite comfortable. This is quickly becoming my go to pencil skirt pattern.
I didn’t agonize over lining or underlining this one. While the fabric is light, with the busyness of the print, and being awake when I select my undies, I shouldn’t have to worry about VPL*. Awake is the operative word.
It’s rather odd though. When I worked corporate, I never wore skirts. Always, always, always in pants. Even when I advanced beyond pulling cables and racking servers in the data center. Lately, though, it’s been a slurry of skirts. Go Figure!
