This is the skirt that I made a wearable muslin for a while ago, the Red Salsa skirt. I have decided to call it the Stephanie skirt because when I started making it I kept thinking “my friend Stephanie will love this skirt!” Pencil with a fancy flounce at the back! Just her style. Anyway, I hope she likes it.
I made it from the super bargain wool/silk blend that I found in the discount section at Fabricland. It is a great neutral. Steel blue will go with almost anything!
This skirt has 3 flounces at the back. I cut the top and bottom flouce out of the skirt fabric and the middle flounce out of a grey lace. I used my lace edge technique from my eyelet lace skirt, adding the scalloped edge to the cut lace. I think it is really pretty.
The back seam below the zipper is a little wavy for sure. Hmm… Pressing may help. I paired it with my Pewter Pendrell blouse. A nice match I think.
I think this will be a great staple in my wardrobe. The blue jeans of dressy skirts. Do you have a great dressy staple?
