Simple but stylish

Just a fairly brief post this time to showcase a skirt finished today. Although it did take a fair amount of work to sew due to all the individual pieces involved (plus the trim) I think the overall effect is simple, timeless and stylish... and hopefully you will too!

Designed to replace a much loved oldie that had given up the ghost in an unrepairable fashion, this needle cord skirt consists of a fitted top section which gives way to gathered layers. 
The 'raw' (overlocked) edges are visible at the top of each gathered layer, and there is a velvet ribbon trim to finish it all off.
I have to admit, when I saw this on the customer at the last fitting it did make me want one for myself. I'll be making at least one more at some point anyway as I already have some purple needle cord set aside for another for this customer, but maybe a similar one for me too...
