It all started with a pattern testing request. I showed the Misusu Patterns Doris skirt to our youngest daughter and she really liked the design. She likes wearing skirts.
This Misusu Doris Skirt Ladies version was immediately purchased has soon as it was introduced. I made first a version for myself using a remnant bought at Holland Stoffenhuis. This fabric has the right amount of stretch for this skirt.

Well written English sewing instructions and added illustrations help you step by step to sew this skirt. You have another waist then hip size? No problem: the sewing instructions also has a chapter about blending between sizes.
No figure darts because they are worked up into the side seams and back center seam.

The sizes of my version

The pattern runs through at the center back. To achieve this I spend two hours to lay the pattern on the fabric.
I blended between size BB and CC and used waistband BB and also added 8 centimeters due to my length (1.78cm).

My Doris skirt has a kick pleat so my skirt has a more business look. The hem is done by hand. I also made my piping band using dark blue fabric because I didn’t find the right one in the shops.
I used some interfacing to add some strength to the V-point.

What can I tell more about the Doris skirt

I’m very pleased with my Doris skirt. The skirt fits like a glove and the length is just perfect. This skirt is very easy to make although it looks at first glans a little bit complicated.

I was a little bit worried about all the layers of fabric at the cross over waist area but the reduction of the bulk did the job.
The interesting details like the side seam running from back to front and the use of piping band but also the cross over waistband lift this skirt to another level.
