This version is actually a hybrid of pattern 02/2006 - 113 and 114 seen below though I can't recall which is which now. I used the small, low pocket with the plain hemband. I also left off the waistband and just drafted a facing by placing the finished fronts and backs onto fabric and cutting curved bands to fit. The back is very plain with a centre back seam and invisible zip. My pockets are lined with some scraps of silk.
I don't know why I didn't already have a khaki skirt in my wardrobe, I love it, so easy to wear, in fact I wore it on 2 days during the trip.
First waiting outside our hotel, which was about 3ks outside the city, for a cab to take us into Florence. these are the practical shots where you really get to see how the skirt looks.
In Florence outside a random giant door. You probably can't see but I was feeling very pleased with myself here for finding a copy of La Mia Boutique at a news stand, it was the September issue and came with a free issue from November 2011. I snapped it up and carried it around sightseeing the entire day. Of course it turns out you can buy the magazine pretty much anywhere, I was able to get October's later in the trip too although I was a bit smarter and didn't buy it first thing in the morning.
My well travelled magazines! I'm a bit embarrassed to say that this was my only sewing purchase on the trip, sorry fabric fans!
You can't see the skirt here, but I thought I would include the obligatory leaning tower shot for fun!
