This material is by one of my favourite fabric designers, Liberty of London. It was given to me as a gift and for ages I couldn’t decide what to make with it, I just pulled it out every now and then to admire! Since it has a slight stretch, I finally chose to make a close-fitting, zipper-less pencil skirt. I decided on a facing instead of waistband and added a kick pleat to allow some movement. It was super easy to make and I love the result – the fabric’s so gorgeous that it stands alone. I wore this skirt (the day I finished it? Of course!) when out shopping for wedding dresses. I don’t know if I can wait until next summer to wear it again!
