finished a lined linen skirt, on the bias

Linnen, cut on the bias.
First picture shows accurate colour.

Waist band, pockets in side seam, lapped zipper in side seam:

Lining with a rolled hem and french seams. Attached at waist band and zipper.

Sideseams sewn, folded flat and sewn again. Finished with pinking shears.

Pockets weirdly low as I tried to stay clear of the zipper. Next time trying to combine the two.

There’s tape in the side seam, to prevent stretching. It has a double function in catching the lining. Later on the waist band is put over these three layers: fabric, lining, band.

Everything was staystitched too, as soon as the fabric was cut. Fabric cut on the bias will stretch otherwise.

Lapped zipper, my first.
I’ve worn this skirt a couple of days now and some of the bits need refinishing. The end of the waist band popped loose, for one:

Fabric cut on the bias wears very pleasantly. I want to make more.
