Ever wonder what the inside of a "home-made" skirt looks like?
Here it is...
This is my "come on T.J." face.
This makes for a pretty darn comfy skirt - I used a fabric with a little bit of a stretch for forgiveness. To make the skirt I started with a Butterick pattern - 5333 - but made some significant changes to it. I added a slit in the back and tapered the bottom of the skirt a lot tighter. I have made this particular skirt twice before, the first time following the pattern exactly, and the second making small changes. To make the changes this time I held up a store bought skirt with a fit I really like and just sort of drew off where I wanted the pattern to be smaller. I am in the process of making a plain hot pink pencil skirt from my altered pattern right now. So what do you think? Does it still look like a baby dress?
