Pattern: I used two 18" x 30" rectangles for the skirt and I can't remember the measurement for the waistband. For the best fit, I need a contoured waistband. This one gapes a bit. I was going to use Simplicity 2215, but the waistband is just a rectangle and the pleats are asymmetrical.
Fabric: poly/silk/wool faille from Mood - I was able to iron the fabric at a hot temperature with a pressing cloth and there were no problems.
|I had to hand stitch the waistband facing because stitching-in-the-ditch was not working out and neither was topstitching.|
Next up will be finishing my sister-in-law's skirt (it's halfway done), Anhinga and Simplicity 2054 out of gray sweatshirt fleece.
