Oh, I just looked it up and there is a word for that.
With that being said...
I'm so excited for an opportunity to wear this somewhere fancy! I love this skirt but it`s very fancy, which limits my opportunities to wear it.
I used the floral silk that I bought in Istanbul. It`s very luxurious feeling and drape-y. I wanted a bit more structure so I underlined everything with some medium weight silk organza. I figured that drape-y would in this case translate to clingy. Clingy is not my friend.
All the basting of the underlining too ages but I'm glad I did. Also, I had a few moments of terror when I sewed up the side seams and it was too tight! I think I must have traced the wrong line on my pattern. I think. Ugh! It's a pattern that I drafted and there were a couple of different drafts on the same page.
Anyway, I had to pick out the stitches from my poor delicate silk! There's even still a faint line where the original stitching was. It was super sad, but I think it'll be OK and it's not very noticable.
As always, I used a grosgrain ribbon to finish the waistband. I splurged and bought silk.
