Power Skirt

It’s more than what it looks like–really. 

 

Or as Sandra Betzina calls it in Power Sewing Step-by-Step,  “Terrific Tube Skirt.” I’m wearing it with second-hand Kork Ease sandals, although the early 2000s block heels shown in the book made me nostalgic.

One yard of fabric; one seam with 1.5″ allowance.  (It hangs so beautifully!)  I used her ruching technique on the back hem. The fabric is Marcy Tilton’s black “Parisian Plus” knit, no longer available. It reminds me of a pair of Sympli pants that I wore to death.

And there it is. Sometimes you just need a quick fix.

Blurry “styling” photo with latest thrifting score: Eileen Fisher chambray shirt jacket, tags still on. Woot!
