Project Description: My inspiration:  mini skirt BOY by BAND OF OUTSIDERS that was worn by Gwyneth Paltrow in Glee! ( My RTWproject- part 2) I drafted this A-line mini skirt pattern to create the shape required

Pattern Sizing: I used 34

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? As I was recreating a different skirt type, I have to say that I am very happy with the final result.

Fabric Used:Double knit jersey, satin bias tape, brass zipper

Technique used: Bias tape and Mitered Corners

Pattern alterations or design changes:I transferred the side darts into pleats on the waste in the front. Then I added 5" (15cm) extra to the centre front for a wrap effect piece. The left side of the zipper is attached directly to the skirt panel beside the pleat, the right side is sewn under the edge of the wrap. I placed the right pocket a little higher than the original, as it was pulling the back of the skirt out of shape, probably due to the fabric difference. (Originally suiting flannel is used)

Conclusion:I love the pattern and the skirt came out quite nicely- I wore it to do some shopping and noticed how every female passing me was eyeing the skirt- what a great feeling! Also the original price must be somewhere around £££ when I ended up spending around £10 - some value!!!!
