The pattern is self-drafted and fit the fabric just about. It’s light summer linen. I added a lining of silk shiffon.
The side seam is sewn, folded down and sewn again.
Raw edges of the side seam are then pinked. Lining is shorter than the fashion fabric and has a rolled hem. It’s chiffon silk.
A handpicked zipper. The sides are uneven on purpose as I needed more wearing ease at the hip but less so at the waist and below the hip:
After wearing a couple of hours the skirt grew wider and I didn’t need this solution. I even had to put in extra waist darts both at the front and back.
A non-stretching satin band reinfores the waist. It catches both the fashion fabric and the lining and both their edges:
Same spot with the extra darts, needed after a few hours of wear:
Zipper shows where I needed more wearing ease and where not. After thought front darts bulge a little.
New front darts, on top of the old ones. They bulge a bit:
I’ll get someone to take a picture of me wearing it, it looks quite elegant I think.
I now have a staple pattern for a long skirt that fits my body type. It’s quite slim fitting so very usable for fabric cut on the bias.
