My wool skirt is coming along nicely.
Instead of a back vent or kick-pleat, I decided to add a godet. I am excited to see how this added bit of shape at the back turns out.
And then there was a whole lot of catch-stitching to do.
Being a wool pencil skirt, this garment definitely needed a lining. And I happened to have some bemberg rayon that is an almost perfect color match to the wool, which was quite handy.
The waistband is boned to help keep its shape.
I normally do my best to avoid plastic boning. But when it is only two inches long, and will not extend past the waistline, it works.
And I have some stashed away, so I might as well use it, right?!
Then there was some more hand stitching . . .
Until all the pieces were put together!
Next, the bulk was graded at the waist seam.
The skirt still requires a hem, but that is for another day.
