As I was rummaging through my pattern stash, I came across Vogue 8697, and made option D, using the leftover fabric from the motorcycle jacket. (Visit my blog for more details: www.seamstressfromvenus.wordpress.com)
I actually made this skirt pattern two years ago in grey with black pipping. It was one of my first projects and I remember adding the interfacing to the lining instead of the outer fabric. It took me about a month to make. This one came together in a couple days.The contrasting pleather panels remind me of the Stella McCartney silhouette dress. I think the next time I make this skirt, I’ll make the hip panels smaller and more curvier to add more of a shapely illusion. I would also shorten the waistband facing because I feel like it kind of overpowers my small body! I already shortened the skirt pattern by 2″.
