Notes The fabric is a beige superior quality viscose perfect for suiting, for summer garments. The color is called sand . Lining: neva' viscon lining, beige
Note: it is crazy how neva'viscon lining frays, I recommend felled seams
There was far too much ease in this skirt, although I used the same measurements as usually. So I had to take in 2x5 cm-s. So it was really difficult to keep the upper panels match together at the seams.
The other thing I don't like in this pattern is that the front piece should have been serged and topstiched, but it is visible when it moves at every step so I have applied bias binding and invisible hem.
Other changes: fully lined, added bias at seam finish and hem, lining felled seamed
Because of the above mentioned it took me a lot of time to put it together but otherwise I am satisfied and the skirt drapes perfectly
I know I should have ironed it better but I could not wait to upload photos

    Sounds like a lot of work, but a very nice result!

    I'm curious to see your skirt. Sand sounds like my colour ;-)
