Black Velvet skirt

Delphine skirt

I was skirt planing when the first task in pattern review’s sewing bee contest arrived in the email, an A-line skirt, and as it happens I had already bought some black velvet the day before for exactly that purpose. So her it  is the perfect skirt that goes with almost everything.

I used about 1.2m 112cm wide cotton velvet, 1m viscose lining, a normal zipper and  scrapes of quilting cotton the the inside of the waistband, button on the inside to protect the zipper, as well as some light interfacing. The pattern is based on the Delphine skirt from Love at First Stitch but modified to give it the fit I like better. I lowered the waistband to sit over my high hip instead and reshaped the hips and added some waist shaping. The result is so comfortable that I don’t want to take it of and have already been wearing allot.

My first try at creating the perfect skirt, This is a modified version of the Delphine skirt from Tilly and the buttons book love at first stitch reviewed her. The blouse is the mimi blouse from the same book. It is made in linen I died a few weeks ago. The fit still needs a few tweaks but I regard this as a summery wearable muslin in minty linen. I have already started one in black cotton velvet that will be perfect for this winter and will go well with all of my blouses.
