Marc Jacobs Bias Skirt - Vogue 2068
I don't know if I'm going to find another vintage top to make from my stash anytime soon but I decided this skirt is my next garment.
I had planned to make this with a certain fabric since November so it is part of some sewing plan, just not the mini-wardrobe. Hopefully, I'll have something to show you soon. Edit: I've sewn the side seams, so it is officially in progress! I remember that it was incredibly easy; easy enough that I actually have two already in my wardrobe and I usually don't make any time consuming or difficult things twice.
The ingenious elastic waistband is the selling point for the skirt. I had to alter it a bit by add a tiny bit to the width (tiny, because it is on the bias) and quite a bit more to the length, because get this, the skirt length according to the pattern is 16 3/4".
Yup, not gonna happen.
I love how they show it as part of a business wardrobe. Maybe for the offices of Vogue magazine but not for the majority of offices in the U.S.
