Self-Drafted "Larkspur" Skirt

I actually finished this skirt about a month ago in a class I took, but only got around to photographing it recently. It was lots of fun, but there are definitely things I need to jot down for next time so I remember what to do (can't rely on pattern instructions this time!).

...The Basics...

  • Pattern: Self-drafted Straight Skirt with slash pockets
  • Fabric: Alexander Henry "Larkspur" cotton; cotton lining (also used for pockets)
  • Other Goodies: grosgrain to stabilize the waistband, invisible zip at center back with tab hook & eye closure at waistband, lace at inside hem of skirt (from my never-ending thrifted ball of lace!)
