DIY Silk Faille Full Skirt

DIY Silk Faille Full Skirt
I absolutely love a full skirt so when I purchased this fabric from Mood I knew I wanted a transition skirt.  The fabric is light and flowe and simply perfect.  It’s slightly sheer so I lined it with a polyester  blend and made the lining detachable, it’s going to be great when vacation time starts.

I used pattern Butterick B5285  View B with the following alterations:
Added inverted pleats around the entire skirt.
Added a 2 1/2 inch panel around the bottom half.
Dropped the back of the skirt 1 1/2 inch to create a more sloped design which gives it more movement.
Added a detachable  lining

      Oddly enough black is my favorite color so unfortunately for some you will see tons of it here.
