Skirts are a versatile option and the Draped Skirt can double for work wear as well as a night out means that you can change up your look without spending on multiple items. The Draped Skirt will help you to expand your sewing and fashion design skills as it requires a little more focus to work with stretch fabrics.
The pattern includes draped side detail and elastic waistband to flatter the hips and add flair to a classic look. Choose a pop of colour or design for your material to make the skirt the standout item in any ensemble or opt for a grey, black or navy to allow this item to transition from work to a night on the town and be more versatile.
Challenge yourself by having a play with the draping but remember that this basic design can be easily accomplished and will add yet another staple item to your collection.
