The high waisted silhouette has taken hold of my imagination lately. I just finished 2 pairs of high-waisted shorts, followed by this embroidered silk skirt.
I bought the fabric at a warehouse sale for a home dec fabric supplier called Pollack Associates. I was there looking for curtain fabric for my dining room, but this embroidered silk jumped out at me and I had to have some of it. They had it in several colorways, none of which would work for my dining room, so I made a skirt with it instead. But I also managed to get dining room curtain fabric.
The pattern I used is from Burdastyle 3/09 104, adapted. The yoke and the pockets are part of the original pattern, and I added the pleats.
