AKA my 'homage' to Melizza's stripey Ginger.
Well, I started this skirt at the beginning of May, with high hopes that I would get it finished before the end of May, and be able to wear it for MMM12. However, lack of interfacing, getting distracted by a Lydia top and finishing my Burda trousers and life in general, prevented this from happening.
As mentioned in my previous post, I used a now out of print pattern (Simplicity
with the addition of pockets (from Simplicity 2451) a bit of
fiddling and some ricrac(!).
I was debating whether to line it or not - I decided against it in the end, although if I want to extend its seasonal wear I'll have to make a slip. I wore it for the first time on Saturday, with flesh colour fishnets (which I hope look better than they sound!) and even with these, my skirt was creeping up my legs.
So on to the photos:

I love this skirt! I made it on a whim, and it is everything I wanted it to be, practical, comfortable (apart from the hook 'n' eye that needs to be reattached somehow) and stripey. Plus it will go with a number of my RTW tops. Thanks for for the inspriation Melizza!
