That’s what I made out of that length of ultrasuede fabric I was given.
I went over a number of different ideas for it, but in the end thought I’d get the most wear out of a skirt, and I wanted to keep the shape simple to let the color be the focus. (I even, get this, made a practice version first…but don’t worry, I won’t get in that habit.)
The pattern is Simplicity2152, and I originally made the version with the welts, but decided I liked unadorned, straight seams better.
I’m still toying with the idea of adding some additional embellishment, but I thought I’d wear it out and about, first, to test it, and enjoy it at least once this way before I take it any further. I left the hem raw, just because with ultrasuede, you can, like all the 1970′s Halston dresses left with cuffs unhemmed.
