DIY Jacquard Full Skirt

With the change in seasons I have been drawn to more elaborate and embellished fabrics like this amazing Carolina Herrera jacquard that is simply the most gorgeous fabric EVER! and much more impressive in person.  My original thought for this fabric was a dress but because it’s such a bold print, I thought it may be a bit overwhelming so I stuck with a skirt and a top which I plan to pair with a pencil skirt down the road.  One note on this fabric is that the turquoise threads are very fragile and prone to snags so be cautious.

The skirt was made using Butterick B5285 view B with the following pattern alterations:

-Added 5.5″ to the length
-Used inverted pleats instead of box pleats
-Added a 2″ waistband
-Added a 9″ invisible zipper to the back waist
