The curved seam skirt is almost complete. I decided to use a cotton polka dot jacquard fabric, one of my "I'm buying it because I love it" purchases that I had on hand. The fabric is wonderful --- it has a substantial weight and the design is really fun. However, in hindsight, I think this skirt design would have been more attractive with a solid fabric. Or, perhaps some contrast piping along the curved seams would have helped to make those beautiful lines stand out. I really like the design and fit of this skirt, so I think a solid one --- perhaps in wool crepe --- will be in my future!
I lined the skirt with rayon Bemberg lining and inserted an invisible zipper. The waist treatment is interesting, as there is no waistband or facing, but the fit is perfect. Here is a photo of the understitching I did along the waist.
I made mitered corners for the hem vents to create a clean finish before stitching the lining in place.
All I have left to do is sew the lining along the zipper and then it will be complete!
