A Simple Skirt
This is a simple, one-seamed skirt with an elastic waist that I made from a border print cotton sateen I discovered at JoAnn's last summer. But as you know, simple isn't easy...
I matched the print at the back seam
Difficult to see (success!), but I assure you that there is a seam running up the center back of the skirt. You can tell a little bit at the bottom, because...
...I also added a kick pleat.
My hip measurement and the print dictated the circumference of the skirt, and I used this technique for the matching after pressing under the seam allowance and facing for the kick pleat.
If I had it to do over again, I'd add a lining to minimize wrinkling but I'll just wear a slip with it in the future.
