Back in January I began the skirt suit from McCall's 5532 . The top/suit jacket I completed right away (here) but I kept putting off cutting out and sewing the skirt. Why? I don't know. I guess I wanted to waste my sewing time on knit dresses that don't fit, LOL!
Not any more - last night I cut the skirt out and today I completed the sewing.
The end result is a nice, classic, understated basic straight skirt suit.
That is until you turn around. Look at the details on the back - curved princess seams over the tush and a shaped lower hem that gives this skirt a bit of sass!
And of course I had to add a silk charmeuse lining to match the jacket/top.
