[Disclaimer: sorry about the awful blurry pics...it was a really dark miserable day with NO natural light!!]i'm not-so-sure about this skirt...it didn't really work out the way i thought. I had wanted to make a tweed skirt with leather/pleather trim, but i think it might have looked better with just the waistband and part of the yoke, rather than the entire top of the skirt. If you squint it looks like a Barbie doll abdomen (you know like a tanned plastic crotch...not really what i was going for).
The pattern was in the January 2011 issue of Burdastyle magazine and i thought it would be perfect for the tweed-skirt-with-trim idea....buuuuut, i'm just not-so-sure. I'm also not-so-sure about the godet pleat in the back instead of a split. I don't hate it...i'm just not-so-sure i like it.
I do love the fabric though!!
