V8750-Faux leather skirt

My November Garment a Month project is the faux leather skirt.  This is my third version of this skirt.  My first one was a denim fabric with lace look woven into the fabric, I acquired it from EOS.  I love this version as it works for fall, winter, spring and summer.
My second version was fabric from Fabric Mart that was also a fabric similar to denim yet the second one was a stretch woven. The bottom side pieces on this one were cut on the bias.
Here is the front piece of my faux leather version. 
This is lovely and easy to work with fabric I acquired from Sawyer Brook in 2012.  I would love to acquire this same type faux leather in another color.  The pattern calls for top stitching of the upper, middle and lower front side pieces; also top stitching of the front seams.   I decided to not do that on this until the skirt is more complete.  I have a concern about the "give" of this fabric and I think it will do okay yet if not I did not want to have to undo top stitching because holes appear in the fabric and remain when removed. 

Updates to follow.

  1. The leather skirt is looking good! I have that same faux leather from Sawyer Brook so I know it's a dream to sew with. If you're going to topstitch, use your teflon foot. It will help insure that you get the best results!

    1. I have used the teflon foot for the entire project thus far. It does work well on faux leather and suede.

    1. Making good progress. Now ready to install the zipper and can't decide whether to have an exposed or invisible zipper.
