Cool Dark Brown Ponte Skirt

This is a very simple skirt made from the cool dark brown ponte which is the same colour as the drapey viscose (rayon) knit I used for the top yesterday.
I like to use the back piece of the skirt from Vigue 2989 and cut it out twice. Side seams are stitched and overlocked, top is overlocked then elastic zigzagged on by machine (easier to remove if required!). The hem is simply done on the coverhem machine.
With yesterday's top this makes a dark inner column, ideal for wearing a bold jacket/scarf/necklace. Those supporting pieces make getting dressed a lot easier.
