Do I need Christian Lomboutin for inspiration? Nahh! Jann is just as inspiring!

36-44, I made a 36 for Felicity
Changes I made:
I lengthened the skirt to just under the knee for that retro look by adding 15 cm. I followed the angle of the side seams to keep the pegged look so it’s fairly narrow around the hem.
I added a centre back seam and moved the zip from the side around to the back. I used a zip inherited from my mum (vintage!) and a lapped zip insertion.
I lined the skirt with ivory acetate from the stash. It has a lovely rich hand. I suspect it was leftover lining from one of the wedding dresses I made many years ago either for myself or my sister-in-laws. I used the lining fabric to face the waistband, for the inner pockets and as interfacing in the waistband. I’ve had a few disasters lately with iron-in interfacing…
