Patrones Extra Febrero 2006 Modelo 48 Dolce & Gabbana skirt
Well, I finally got to wear my Patrones skirt today to my interpreting assignment and had my mom (who graciously offered to watch my kids while I worked) take some pictures.
As you can see this is a very simple pencil skirt, two darts in the back, two in front, zipper on the side seam. I made myself work harder because it is from Patrones magazine. I am used to tracing because I make lots of Burda WOF, but Patrones is even skimpier in its information. For example, I did not know how low this skirt would sit on my waist(about 1 1/2 in), that info is not given, and usually you cannot tell by the picture on the model. I chose to line my skirt up the waistline and skip the facings. I finished the waistline with topstitching to secure the lining to the fashion fabric.
The jacket I am wearing is from a Burda WOF which I made a while ago, I am thrilled that I made myself an outfit with a piece I already had. The fabric for the skirt was in my stash, a satin cotton with stretch which I believe came from Joann's. The lining also from my stash came from a local fabric outlet store that has since closed.
