Ok, here it is bigger. I'm not sure why I couldn't upload to my server last night but it's all better today.
I love this skirt. They show it well in the magazine in the Paris Chic section. It's below the knee and above the waist by about an inch.
I really like how it looks. I have any other high-waisted skirts or pants but I think I will make more. I was worried about them being too uncomfortable but this one is very comfortable. I made it in a very neutral black/white houndstooth from Gorgeous Fabrics. It's left over from this dress. I'll need to make some blouses to go with the skirt. I mostly wear fitted knit tops during the school year. Now, I'll have to mix it up with some blousier things.
I'm not sure why I have the wrinkles in my right hip but they are so subtle, I'm not gonna worry about it.
I did something totally different this time with the lining. The lining is orange Ambience I had left over from some projects. I edged it with turquoise bias tape.
Many of you have asked how I get some a clean finish on my skirts. You have asked me to do a tutorial. When I did this skirt, I made sure to take lots of pictures. A tutorial will be coming shortly. This is not my technique, but instead a technique I gleaned from Kathleen Fasanella over at Fashion Incubator. Here's part one of the invisible zipper tutorial and here's a link to all her tutorials. Check them out, they are great.
