I love, love, love this skirt.
Mainly because I love, love, love the return of real waistbands right up there, waist high.
I like my skirts to stay put.
This is a super comfortable skirt (I interfaced both the facing and waistband piece for support) and I am pleased with the kinda of A line not quite straight skirt style.
It also shows some of the subtlety of designer patterns - the waist piece was very curved and shaped (versus those rectangles many skirt patterns have) and the gores, this is a gored skirt, were gentle and not too exaggerated. A super wearable skirt I would make again, although maybe not with the heavy zipper, not sure how many of those a wardrobe needs.
I know there are going to be those mornings.
Those mornings when you get up and remember you should have got milk, or that you were supposed to go in early to get ready for the meeting, and your mother calls to ask if you remembered someone's birthday and you didn't, you were supposed to get dog food when you got milk, if you had got milk, and it's late, and you feel you work too hard and no one notices.
And then you unzip this skirt and it's silk inside. And you are glad you took the time on a day not like that day to do something nice for yourself.
Because if you notice, that's just fine too. And quite enough.
