I have decided that 2011 is going to be a skirt heavy sewing year.
Butterick 5882 is my first skirt of 2011: It is from the early 1950s
I just finished up this skirt in a navy cotton blend.
It is lined using the same skirt pattern and the zipper installed by hand.

as the skirt is.
The skirt is fantastic.
I love how the insets create a box pleat effect so easily.
I wore this outfit yesterday, and received many compliments. Most importantly, no one thought I had made this skirt! It interests me that the highest compliment I can receive does not recognize that I made something myself rather than bought it. I was very happy with how the skirt wore.
