I had to tweak the waistband a little to make it curve into my waist by tapering into a deeper seam on its side seams. I inserted a back zipper and lined the skirt. The waistband was faced and the lining attached to the facing to achieve a nice clean finish on the inside.
I studied the bow on the Kate Spade skirt and tried to mimic it as closely as possible. It was just a matter of sewing strips of fabric together and interfacing the "bow" portion so that it would not droop.
I am wearing it for the first time to work today. If you notice, my stripes have a bit more of a wave to them than the original Kate Spade skirt because of the bias nature of the pattern. I am happy I got this made before the Fall weather begins to set in. Of course, here in south Alabama, it will be November before it gets really cool, so I am having a hard time getting into Fall sewing.
Here is how I wore the skirt:
