Last year Kyle and I bought this fabric at Elliott Berman in New York.
|The neckline has piping and I’ve used a grey zipper.|
Kyle’s skirt posts are now my reference point for the pencil skirt so I made a test version using a fabric remnant from Pitt Trading.
This fabric has great wool content and Kyle’s allergic to wool so you can follow her techniques if you’re also allergic to wool.
I find wool irritating so I followed Kyle’s advice.
This fabric has no stretch to it but I love the colours in it because they brighten up Winter grey.
The lining was quilted for the jacket so it’s quite boxy as you can tell from the back view.
Once I cut out the jacket, there was enough for the skirt. I made the most of this fabric.
I think I have a ‘thing’ for pockets. Ok, you’re allowed to chuckle.
|Here’s how I used a template to make the pockets curve nicely.|
|Here’s how they worked out.|
|This is the final closeup of the pockets.|
I’m ready to put this pattern aside – for now.
