This skirt is from the April Burda "World of Fashion". This is a pencil skirt. I added a godet at center back to create walking ease. Notice the button closure, which I added in concert with the invisible zipper. You can see the total effect with the suit jacket, worn with a tight fitting black camisole underneath. It' s still a 'pencil' skirt, but I am not hobbled a la Paul Poiret, who so generously 'freed' women from corsets in the early part of the last century, but compromised their mobility by proscribing the aptly named, 'hobble skirt'.
