The fabric used for the skirt is Armani tweed picked up on a trip to NY. The fabric is"laced" with the snake like leather tape. The texture of the fabric is incredible!
I decided to create side darts to add interest to the front of the skirt. Boning was added to hold the shape and prevent wrinkles at the waist.
I love the results - it is dressy enough to wear to a special occasion, yet also appropriate for the day in the office.
