Simplicity - 1717 Misses Skirt
I had a similar patent leather skirt (before kids) which was SUPER short and wanted a more grown-up version. Plus I was drawn to the Kristen Stewart look-alike model on the envelope. Pattern Sizing: 6-14. This was my first "Amazing Fit" pattern which has 1" side seam allowances. I cut my regular... more...
