The skirt has a faced waist rather than a waistband. The pattern doesn’t call for a lining, but I like linings. I always have very good results following “Quick lining a skirt with waist facings” from Connie Long’s book Easy Guide to Sewing Linings.
I used an invisible zipper.
I meant to underline this linen with silk organza to limit wrinkling, but completely forgot to. Well, the skirt will still do fine.
Till I sew up some blouses and knit tops for this ensemble, I’ll wear a white t-shirt with it.. The jacket and skirt can be worn together or separately, dressed up or down. It will be fun to test-drive them during my upcoming Ohio trip.
Proper photos are coming soon.
