Several weeks ago I posted about a pattern I tested called the Haute Skinny Skirt. You can look at that post here. I loved the look of the skirt, but was bothered by the slit in the leg. I felt like it was too high for me.
So I hacked the pattern and finished just in time to wear it while I accompanied Mr. Jiggs to some meetings he had to attend. We took a weekend trip to the conference and I needed to look professional for several days. I'm a stay-at-home-mom...business casual isn't really a staple in my wardrobe. (Actually, I took this skirt to work on in the hotel room and then ended up wearing it because I didn't take quite enough outfits for all the events I needed to go to with him...)
I put the slit in the back and created a vent sort of thing so I never show skin through the slit. It was perfect! It's one of my favorite skirts now when I want to look professional and attractive. It's a comfortable, conservative, flattering, pencil skirt and it's just what I wanted!
Sorry about the wrinkles. These pictures were taken on a walk after church. I'd been sitting in it all day...
