Basing off the pattern I made from my grey skirt, I made this one, but with a 4cm shorter hem and a 1cm thicker waistband. With piping!

Also my face is blocked out because I just saw Feist in concert and I was beat. I literally finished hemming this 2 hours before, just so I could wear it.




Yeah so the piping was hell. The seam allowances were all wack because my zipper foot wasn't cooperating, so I had to bias tape the edges of the waistband inside, then blindstitch it down. I also started it off with a black invisible zipper, but as I was trying it on, the zipper got stuck and broke, so I had to rip it off. The metal zipper was the only one i had lying around, and I believe it was fate because it looks 10x better.

I love this! I love the syle of it and can't even imagine how much work all that piping was.
And I, too, love the gold zipper, it really adds something to the skirt.
