I finished the Leaf Yoke sweater shortly after my last post about it.
blogged earlier here) and use some of the many others in my collection. But this skirt is so easy to make and graceful to wear. I made a few alterations to this as well. I used a stretch velvet, which meant that I could use an elastic pull-on waistband.
Then I added a 3" rectangular band of doubled stretch illusion to the hem (cut 6.5" and the width of the skirt, then folded and sewn w/ a 1/4" seam allowance). It might have flowed more gracefully if I used a curved band, but that would have added a seam at the hem. I made the choice to make it easy on myself and use the rectangular band.That's the great thing about making stuff yourself. You can make alterations and experiment.
