Originally, this textured silk gazar fabric put me in the mind of a cocktail dress. It’s been in my stash for well over a year, but I could never really get my head around making a fancy dress that I might wear once or twice. But recently, I looked at it and thought about what a great skirt it would make. It does, indeed, make a great skirt.
The skirt is in three layers. The navy silk gazar is on top. Next is a fuchsia silk organza. At the bottom is a white silk crepe, which adds some opacity, trimmed with mint green lace, which looks nice under the sheer organza.
The waist sits at my natural waist, with a straight waistband. I interfaced it with ban-roll, which is wonderfully stiff. There’s an invisible zip and a hook and eye closure.
