A recent shopping trip left me bemoaning a lack of interesting, yet work appropriate skirts, which are lightweight enough to wear in an office which regularly reaches 30 degrees in the summer months. I decided to try draping a skirt front. I started out with a pencil skirt base, with the front drawn asymetrically so it scoops up at one side, so this skirt was not draped completely, rather the front panel was draped.

adding the draped panel – I tacked down the pleats where they intersected the side seams before cutting round to form the final front piece
