Here is a skirt I made for myself a few years ago. The fabric is a stable knit that I purchased from Emma One Sock. http://www.emmaonesock.com/
Despite the wonderful nubby texture of the fabric I felt that the skirt lacked "punch", so I played around with the remaining fabric to create a loose panel on one hip. I used the front and back pattern piece to create a panel that covers the upper front and back of one side of the skirt. I played around with the horizontal stripes to cut the panel in a way that is interesting to the eye.
If you ever look at designer clothing in stores or in magazines you will notice that designers frequently have a unique little twist that sets their designs apart. As sewists we can do the same thing by playing around with the design until we make it uniquely ours.
I wear this skirt with a black turtleneck sweater and black boots.
