See that look on my face? That's the look of a woman who is feeling very smug about how wonderful her new skirt is.
Right?! I used a scrumptious Oscar de la Renta silk twill from emmaonesock.com. I ended up buying about twice as much as I needed and it still cost less than the polyester skirt that was my inspiration. Booyah.
Plus my version has pockets, so that's a definite win.
Even the inside is pretty. I used some lace trim to finish the raw edge of the hem.
I was pretty lost in terms of matching thread for the invisible hem stitch, so I used grey thread, as per Gertie's handy tip.
Also, look how nice these pictures turned out! My friend Brian took them for me again. Woot!
