I got some navy twill weave wool from LA last February and made a vintage patterned skirt out of it a week and a half ago. Took me about 6 hours. The size was 11.5 which had a 24.5" waist so I just added an 1/8" to each side seam piece and that's it! Instead of altering the waistline for my high left hip I just used the hem puffer and raised the right hem, not the most legit way, but it worked fine. I've made the same pencil skirt pattern 3 times in a row, and still have another wool to make it in, but I'm LOVING my A-line skirt with my gold buttons. I wore it to two wedding receptions and Christmas church. I think I might be going A-line and full for awhile.
I need to make other skirts! Skirts are my favorite, they're so fast and somehow seem to add more than other pieces to your wardrobe, and full skirts with tights are so wintery and fun.
