I'm hoping you'll be pleased to see this one! It's Sample nr. 2, the longer version of the folded mini. A lot of people requested a longer version, and now that I've made one I'm convinced that this is a really good option too! Due to the nature of the folds I had to draft a completely new pattern for it. It was a good opportunity to test my adjustments and choose a technique for the zipper. The silhouette hasn't changed, it's still a fitted skirt that accentuates your feminine curves.
The fabric is a medium weight knit, lined with a navy interlock knit. This was much easier to work with than the slinky knit. Again there are no exposed seams on the inside dus to the way it is put together. Yay for not having to finish seams :) I basicaly added one extra fold to get the length. These horizontal stripes do make me look a bit big, but that's also due to the way I'm wearing it. Normally I wear a cardigan on top which balances it out a bit more.
I chose to do an exposed zip at the cb, because a side one would be messy with all that fabric. I really like it, it feels like it fits the style of the skirt. Only maybe it could be 1 or 2 cm's shorter, no? And I'm also thinking this would be really good paired with a navy blazer. I need one more sample to check if my instructions are correct. It'll probably be a long version again, this skirt is so warm and cozy! And I can wear it on more occasions than the short version. I'm already thinking of putting up an Etsy shop to sell some samples. There must me someone else with an off the scale hip/waist ratio, right? After that, it's time to digitalize it and find some pattern testers! So tell me, is this what you had in mind?
