Circling the A-line

You saw a sneak peek of this earlier in the week.  Oh, how I love this skirt!

A-line skirt - flat

Gorgeous fabric from Tessuti, with what looks like string couched onto the fabric.

The pattern is Nikki’s A-line skirt once again, in the shorter length. I used an invisible zip at the centre back and top stitched the yoke.  Bias binding was sewn to the wrong side of the fabric then turned to the right side as a contrast feature around the hem, leaving a little of the main fabric showing to look like piping.

The lighter bias reduces the shock of the contrast between the black of the skirt and the glare of my legs just a little!
