The October one-day theme on Sophistique Noir is lace. Many goth styles use lace, particularly in combination with dressy fabrics such as chiffon, satin or velvet. Using simple sewing patterns, you can make some beautiful additions to your gothy wardrobe. Here are some ideas.
This is one of my favorite patterns. I love the style of view B in particular. It's full and flowing, and with multiple panels, it can be made in complementary colors. I have at least six skirts made in view B. In this case, however, I used view E because I had only two yards of lace. The lace had scalloped edges, and I placed the pattern pieces so that the edges because the bottom of the skirt. The pattern does not have instructions for a lining/underskirt, but that's no problem. Just make two skirts - one lace, one satin - and stitch them both to the same waistband.
