Black Pleather/Ponti Skirt
I had a rather large piece of ponti pleather left over from my ponti/pleather pants. After seeing Stylearc's Charlie Stretch Woven Skirt, I decided that this was what my leftovers would become. I didn't have the patience to wait for delivery of the pattern though and am also feeling a little guilty about the volume of sewing patterns currently making their way into my stash. It was time to put pen to paper, or in my case Sharpie to plastic.
I started with my tnt Lindy Petal Skirt pattern which is a free pattern by Itch to Stitch. The back and waistband were both used in my new skirt pattern. Because of fabric limitations with the pleather, I added a strip of remnant ponti at the side back. The yoke and pocket pieces were both traced from my jeans pattern. I added faux front pockets and a faux fly front.
I am really happy with the resulting skirt. It was intended as a winter skirt but will also transition nicely into spring.
