Our Dahlia Skirt Hacks series is all about how to take a pattern and make it your own. And that's just what one pattern tester did here. This is Marie, she's a brilliant sewist and a seriously stand-up pattern tester.
She had a vision for her skirt and she went for it! For her skirt, she sized down to eliminate some of the design ease and make it more body hugging. That's it, that's the hack!
But...she was also thoughtful about fabric and design options. She chose a faux stretch leather which really let the top stitched panels shine.
And to complete the look, she chose the high waist yoga band option with gives this skirt a pencil skirt vibe...without the tight fit of a pencil skirt near the knees. Because you know, in a faux leather pencil skirt it would be kind of hard to, well, walk... Pure genius here if you ask me!
Her version just has that high end look and feel from all angles. Thanks for the inspiration Marie!!
