Just a simple black skirt with a couple of pockets, for one’s order book and pen, hidden in a seam line.
Plenty of versions of this skirt have popped up on blogs and for good reason – it is a good pattern. It came together easily and I only really took it in a little on the sides and back for fit. I also added to the length. I’m not 100% happy with the straight waistband, but am still happy with the fit.
I used a stretch sateen from Spotty for the skirt. It looks quite creased here in the morning sun, but doesn’t look that bad in real life.
