This is Paco’s half-circle skirt that recently made in navy silky jersey. (See also Sunday Sewing on this blog). Fabric was purchased online from Tissu who do an amazing selection of jersey knits and stretch fabrics. I’ve just started sewing with stretch fabrics always thinking that they were difficult to control, but really – so easy.
It is the most beautiful skirt to wear – comfortable, swingy, and makes me stand taller and stride out.
It can be dressed up for work (as here) or dressed down for lazing about at home. As usual – it’s lined with a stretch navy lining fabric.
Today it is worn with a Laura Ashley cardigan and one of my precious Hermes silk scarves.
The almost invisible zip. I’m not very good at inserting zips – usually I just pull a top down over the waistband to hide it. Knowing that I’ll be taking photos of my sewing projects for this blog might make me improve my technique.
My waist is not XL!
