A ‘quick and easy’ project after The Jacket that took forever? Good idea.
I need a straight skirt for winter and making one now before I go overseas into very early spring is a great idea because I can take it with me… And why not make it a bit more interesting by adding an exposed zip.
Hmm ‘quick and easy’ quickly and easily turned into time-consuming.
Here’s the back view of the finished product, showing the exposed zip.
My fabric was stretch cotton. So I needed to restrain the stretch at the zipper opening and the waist. I used a fusible interfacing on the top fashion fabric and zipper opening..
and added organza onto the facing to make sure nothing moved .
It worked well!
Here’s the front view, on the hanger..
Stretch cotton, purchased in Turin, Italy for the top fashion fabric. Interacted with fusible interfacing, and the facings interfaced with polyester organza. Lined with grey polyester satin.
