Canterbury Bells skirt at J.Crew, so I was keeping an eye out for a similar print. I was delighted when I saw this print at Gardams. The stretch cotton was a little lightweight for a pencil skirt, so I interlined the skirt with some stretch cotton sateen. Now it is probably a bit heavy for me to wear in summer, but it will get plenty of wear during Spring.
post on seam binding. I had purchased some but never used it. Belinda is always posting useful bits of information just as I need it :). I got it out and used it to bind the edges near the zipper. You can also see my basting where I attached the skirt outer and interlining, to hold the layers together until I stitched them. I didn't line the skirt, as I thought the interlining was more than enough.
