Clémence skirt


In my quest to add more basic pieces into my wardrobe, I made this simple black Clémence skirt from Tilly and the Buttons' book Love at First Stitch. It's a very basic gathered skirt with a simple waistband. I did add pockets to the skirt because pockets are awesome.

The fabric is the same wool and synthetics mystery fabric from my stash I used to make this skirt. The fabric is a bit thicker and is warm in the cold seasons but I've discovered during the few hot days this year that it's also surprisingly cool to wear.

I also chose to deviate from the instructions when it came to installing a zipper. I opted to use a visible decorative zipper instead of an invisible zip. To finish the seam allowances, I used my serger and I hand hemmed the skirt with invisible stitching.
