Another high waisted panel skirt from my own pattern, this time with a lower waistband and a double split at the back instead of a frill.
Very pleased with this skirt, it's a smidgin larger than the last one I made and extremely comfortable. Made of stretch khaki drill (my new favourite colour/fabric) with red stitch detail on the seams which i've lapped for interest. If I'd thought about it for longer, I would have sewn the seams to the outside and flat felled them, which would give a neat finish both sides. I have another skirt in mind which I will do this with.
This style of skirt is my very favourite style and always has been. Most of the skirts I have ever bought have been of the 'pencil' variety so I'm really pleased that i'm now able to make them myself. This cost less than a tenner all in which is very pleasing as the one I took my inspiration from, costs £120! (And yes, before you wonder, I will be making a matching corset!)
And talking of corsets ... The winner of my "which one shall I make first" poll by a long way, is the V&A stays. Here is another model, this one is at the Fashion Museum at Bath. Hopefully I'll get started this week!
