This page from InStyle is what got me in gear to work on this project this week.
This peplum was reconfigured and rearranged so many times. I’m still not entirely happy with it. I think that’s mostly because the skirt is too small for me. These may have been better suited as shorts.
You can’t hear it, but it’s shouting “Warning! Your ass exceeds the maximum capacity limits for this skirt!” LOL!
That’s too bad! Cause I’m digging the satin strip! The waistband,
The only deviation from the standard pants to skirt dealio I made was, I stitched down the pleats closest to the zipper on either side. They buckled out in that horrible way pleated pants always do on me (or anyone with hips). It looks light years better like this.
There’s tons of exciting (sewing, writing, creating) stuff happening here. My room is a wreck, which usually means that I’m feeling inspired!
