This looks lovely and so professional. I love that you inserted boning, too - the high-waisted skirt from the Fall SewStylish used boning and it was the first I've ever heard of such a thing!

Girl. You are on fire in this skirt. Wow. It's very 'naughty secretary' isn't it? It works perfectly with your figure. And I never would have thought to use boning in the waist.

Very Va va Voom, thanks for super tips, tutorial, etc. Great boning idea. Sure its comy sitting a ta desk??....if so i MUST try this too, my high waist clothes get those wrinkles. Thanks so much !

LauraLo said...
Thank you all, I'm really happy you like it! Cidell, it is indeed naughty secretary :), I love this look. Miriam, aka Hawkemorningstar7, the skirt is super comfy, that's why I chose this sew-through boning, because it's very flexible and molds to the body. The pictures are taken after wearing the skirt an entirey day (which means sitting at a desk for an entire day). I didn't even feel there was a boning and bonus... there were hardly any wrinkles or wear lines at the end of the day (this is because of the sturdier interfacing as well).

Wow. That is so stylish and beautifully constructed. Thanks for the boning tip; it's a great idea for this waist style.

I'm tempted with this pattern because you look so good in it but I haven't got your figure. Love the top with it as well.
