This is the skirt I made over the basic dressmaking evening classes I’m attending at AFOL Moda in Milan. It’s a fifties style skirt with tucks both on the front and on the back and a side opening, with a lapped zip and a button. The exercise was to choose a model (Pinterest is a great source of inspiration :)), design your own pattern based on your measurements and sew the skirt.
I used a beautiful 100% wool fabric, petrol green, from the Luigi Colombo wool mill bought on Supercut.it, a normal black zip and a diamond-cut button found into my mom/grandma’s old buttons box.
I hemmed up and made the buttonhole both by hand.
I really like the result! So far the most beautiful thing I made!
