I thought I’d share some of the details of my orange skirt. The pattern is OOP, but it’s a favourite of mine. I’ve made the skirt up before – it’s the purple one in this post.
For this version I made the waistband about 4” wide and top stitched it every 1/8th of an inch. It’s very tight, but that’s the look that I was going for.
And I bagged the hem. I wanted the rounded hem edge instead of a crisp one, and bagging the hem helps the already crisp taffeta stand out as much as it possibly can.
It’s a super fun skirt to wear – it walks like it’s floating around me.

Wow. You’re off to a very good start so quickly in the New Year, this is lovely! I really love how the bagged hem looks.
Gorgeous! Mmm, wish I had places to wear luscious stuff like this. I love the waistband.
Well, I actually don’t have places to wear big taffeta ball skirts, but I wear them anyways!
I opened your blog and said “Wow!” So very beautiful.
So beautiful and elegant.
