marc jacobs illustration

Just a quick illustration I did of this Marc Jacobs spring/summer 11 look, the image I copied was out of a magazine but the image I've got here is shows the fabric to be darker and dusky in colour, in the magazine they were brighter and more summer-ey looking so I'm guessing a bit of photoshop-in had gone on or a bit of light tricky is to blame!!

This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
