Done long ago

I never posted this wool skirt, but I did it like in February. I think today is the second time I wear it and outside is really a hot day. Speak about timing and logic...
Originally I wanted to use this pattern but I saw it is quite simple (basically a quarter circle, a cake piece, cropped with another circle in the middle). So I didn't even bother drafting or cutting a pattern but just cut the fabric. It got fuller as the original and I didn't really thought of bias cut. That was stupid but I actually like the result. Love the colours.



My camera battery was dying so I didn't manage to do better photos, but they somehow are funny. Make you feel the time pressure of the camera being away any time soon...



I put some in-seam pockets too, so I don't have to carry my hands all alone. The dress I am wearing over it is this one. Done it some time ago.



Hmm, seeing the photos make me think that wearing a voluptuous skirt under a dress makes you look a bit like a marshmallow.
I already decided on the bwofys piping but more in the next post!

I like the skirt as it it is (it is more stylish not cut in biais finally, wool fabrics are my favourite. And adding pockets is a good idea as well.

Oh I just love plaid on the bias! Your skirt is lovely. I need to try something like that.

I love that - the length and the fullness are combined perfectly!

geri, you crack me up.

i love that flowiness. i have always wanted to cut something on the bias but i am clueless. doesn't it use a lot of material?
