Self Drafted Peacock Skirt .....

I finished this skirt back in June. It was a custom make for my mother, she'd fallen in love with the fabric, and luckily because the first lot of peacock fabric I'd bought for another project wasn't enough, it meant ordering more and so there was enough left over for a skirt....



The fabric is peacock brocade ordered on eBay from Hong Kong in a teal colour.
I used left over gold lining material - yay for stash busting and using up left overs. 
Pencil style skirt which sits just below the knee, center back invisible zip and vent.
I prefer to use a facing in a straight style skirt, I feel it helps the skirt to look more structured and lie smoother when its being worn.

I drafted the pattern to personal measurements using Winifred Aldrich's metric pattern cutting for women's wear, book.
