I have been watching far too much Downton Abbey lately.  We got it on DVD, so I can just sit there and gorge myself on three episodes at a time.  When I'm not watching Downton, I like to imagine I'm living Downton, thus the need for a long skirt, reminiscent of those that Ladies Mary and Edith wear (not that we want to be an Edith, but she has nice things too). 

This skirt was SUPER simple in design and construction.  I just took a similarly long skirt I had to use as a guide, grabbed my fabric, cut out two pieces, sewed, hemmed, and made a thin doubled-over waistband piece.  There are four darts at the top (two front and two back) for fit and a (not-so)invisible zipper.

Any comments or questions are welcome and appreciated.







Have a lovely day everyone!

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Great skirt and it looks beautiful on you. The shoes, belt and top make a smart looking outfit. Smiley
