Originally, I included the flounce on this skirt as I did on the first one. Apparently the fabric didn't have the right amount of drape because the flounce stuck out like a shark's fin. Don't ask me why this image popped in my head. What can I say? I grew up in the 80s. (Do you know the origin of this still-shot?)
(new skirt; old skirt)
Yeah...see? That thing had to go. Believe me, it was not cute. I have another wool suiting with far more drape out of which I might sew this pattern again.
I don't know if I'll keep this or not. I don't like how it fits - even though the first two versions fit beautifully. I think the fabric is just too...something. The way it hangs on the dress form is how it hangs on me. Meh. If I have to use this as a last resort, I will. In the meantime, Ive already started looking for something else.
I leave you with the entire video from which that still-shot was taken. If you guessed LL Cool J's I'm Bad video, you get a cookie. Since you are not here to claim your cookie, I'll enjoy it for you. =)
