Vogue 1247 - Orange Skirt

Love this skirt! I lengthened it about 6 inches, then took it up 1. I'm short and this original would be very short on me. If I was 15 years younger, I'd wear it that length but not at this point in my life.

The instructions were good. I did not so the binding. It just seemed like a whole heck of a lot of work. If I make it again, I might do it.

I am seriously considering making this out of leather. I need to look at zipper options though. I don't want to do the invisible zipper for it and am not sure how to do a lapped zipper. I need to practice first.

You look fabulous in that skirt! And you know how much I love it especially since I have 2 or 3 more planned...but what an intriguing idea to make it in leather! Fabric Mart has some amazing skins right now that would make an interesting version.

So cute... I have this pattern too and I think leather would be very rock star (in a good way!)

I've added this pattern to my list for the next pattern sale, since it's popping up all over looking great! I like your idea of making it in leather.
