I love a good high-low skirt, they’re flattering and funky which is me to a T. I have a flair for the dramatic and I’ve been drooling over the MET’s newest costume gallery, Heavenly Bodies, so I decided to recreate the Iris ensemble with one of Mood’s ecclesiastical fabrics!
This skirt is the absolute definition of drama, and I’ll be wearing to every fancy function I have, from weddings to my birthday, and probably to the Heavenly Bodies exhibit, too!
The ecclesiastical fabrics are so easy to work with and despite their metallic threads, it isn’t itchy at all. I also totally love the pockets, which makes carrying a cell phone and lipstick so much easier. Both the face and wrong side are absolutely beautiful, I’m wishing I could make this skirt reversible.
Ecclesiastical fabric has been popping up all over the runway, especially at Dolce & Gabbana, who featured them heavily in their Fall 2018 line. This fabric and the rest of the ecclesiastical fabrics would look absolutely stunning as the Inula pant on Mood Sewciety, or as an Alice + Olivia style bomber jacket, lined with gold satin.
This fabric is super lovely, and I’m hoping to make a matching crop top to take this skirt to the next level. This pattern can be dressed down when made with a cotton sateen, preferably one from Mood’s beautiful exclusive collections!
What fabric would you use for this fabulous skirt? Let me know in the comments!
