African inspired skirt

Now that I am finally caught up with my alterations and Christmas is securely BEHIND us, I find time to tend to the tailoring requests that have been put on the back burner.  Since the SUMMER.  Yeah, I admit, it has been a while….

My customer brought in this fabric that she had gotten from one of her journeys:

D. has traveled the world many times over and returned with a lot fabrics that she loved.  Over the past couple of years, I have made everything out of those fabrics from curtains, table cloths, napkins – and skirts.

This particular fabric seems like a heavier rayon and flows beautifully.  For this skirt, I pleated the top, which gathers the pattern in an interesting way.  The pleats then spring open to the full width of the fabric.  I inserted a zipper and left it unlined.

I think it turned out good.
