This is skirt 3 of 5 straight skirts I made myself in April. I'm a bit behind on documenting them. I cut this skirt using the same modifications I made on my first, leopard version. But, for the sake of keeping things interesting, I added a lace trim to the hemline.
My fabric looks washed out against my fluorescent blouse. It's not white, rather, pale, blush pink. Which is a step for me. I went through a pink phase towards the end of high school, and I haven't worn it since. It might be time to bring it back. At least, I'm trying it on.
I did feel very light and springy walking around in pink and florals yesterday. Most everyone I encountered was still dressing in grey and black. Spring hasn't quite sprung here; however, our grass is turning green, which makes me confident we're close!
The addition of the lace to the hemline takes this skirt length to the border line of suitable skirt lengths, IMO. I should have factored in the additional length and shortened things by an inch overall to keep the hem just above the kneecap. Next time.
To attach the lace, I placed the lace on the skirt, right sides together. I stitched a straight line of stitching through the top edge, and then pressed my hem allowance up and away. Then, I secured the hem by hand.
This skirt is my least favorite of the bunch due to the wrinkle factor of the fabric I used to see with. Otherwise, it's perfectly wearable and a nice addition to my closet.
