The Finished Skirt

Better Late Than Never!
I really enjoyed making this skirt. It was well drafted, easy to sew and I still love the fun rear detailing! Making a statement when leaving is underrated... give 'em some RI: Rear Interest!

Beautiful! So sleek and chic, and the bow and pleat are charming! Is that wool fabric?

Myra said...

Great skirt, and your hair looks good like that.

I love pencil skirts with those types of vents.

Wow! That is so cute, I love that detailing on the back (okay, the REAR INTEREST). It came out adorable!

Totally gorgeous. The rear detail is the perfect touch.

The skirt came out great! I love RI clothes. Actually on Project Runway they show a lot of rear interest. By the way, I like the screen you have in the photos. I've been looking for either directions on how to make one or a reasonably priced one to buy. Could you tell me where you got yours? It looks like fabric covering it is it?

Okay, this skirt is so gorgeous that the day you posted it I forwarded your post to a friend. Then I promptly closed my MS Outlook and couldn't find the post again to save my life! So, here I am, finally finding it and finally telling you...it is gorgeous and you should be so proud of yourself. Modern without being trendy, current without looking like you're trying to be 18 - it is perfect!

Thank you all SO MUCH! I just realized I had post moderation switched on... d'uh! I appreciate all of your kind words SO MUCH!

Susannah, it is a wool/poly blend. It was ravelly, but great to work with overall!

Oh, and Maggie, I bought that screen on Overstock! It is a fabric that has casings on the top and bottom and the rods go into little pegs (like dowels) to stay secure.
