A leather skirt for fall

I've been seeing full leather skirts everywhere and ended up finding them versatile (oooh the power of trends, there is probably nothing versatile about a leather skirt) so I decided to make one. I used a Burda pattern from last year in size 34 (that you can download here). I am in looooove the results. I do wear it everywhere, even to the office with either silk shirts or crisp Oxford shirts.The fullness is really nice but it requires to buy pretty big skins (but the leather section of Mood is great and the staff is super helpful), don't forget all your pattern pieces !!FullnessI did an exposed zipper instead of an invisible one (doing them a lot lately). Pattern Runway has a great tutorial about exposed zippers. Even if it's leather (actually especially if it's leather), INTERFACE the zipper area, I did it and it still stretched a little...BackI also interfaced the waistband and lined the whole skirts with leftovers of china silk from other projects.close upI really love this skirt and the pattern is so easy, I'm considering making another one (2?), I'm just not sure about the color: cream ? burgundy ? forest green ?
