I received a beautiful sweater set from my in-laws for Christmas and of course, I needed something new to wear with it. In the stash I had this piece of upholstery fabric that I wanted to make into a vest. Thank goodness there is enough for a skirt and vest.
I made the straight skirt with no pattern. Using my measurements and the "fit while you sew in your underwear" method.
This works when no-one else in home.
I added a cute kick pleat in the back.
