If you have been keeping up with the fashions on Pintrest, you will have seen several versions of the lace skirts that are popular this year. I love them, but unfortunately my figure doesn’t. So, what was I to do but make one for my daughter.
It was very easy to make, just time consuming. I drafted a simple pencil skirt from her measurements, cutting both front and back on the fold. I used a soft cotton lycra knit in a soft ivory colour with a 2.5” wide lace, sewn flat to the skirt fabric. Because of the amount of stretch in the fabric, the skirt didn’t need a zipper.(yay!) I had planned to make a casing for an elastic waist, but instead I just turned down 2.5” and hand stitched it in place. Easy-peasy. I’m very happy to say that the skirt fits perfectly, and I am sure it will be worn often.
The waist is straight, it was just lying wonky. I have a feeling I will be making more of these soon!
