Close Up Details Of Couture Clothing

I'd like to think I've got a treat for you today. Below are a number of close-ups of some the Haute couture designs that graced the runway last week.
 Being obsessed with sewing I'm a complete geek when it comes to the construction know how. I can often be found mauling clothing especially if it's fancy, pawing all the tiny details and pondering how it's been constructed (a proper nosey parker, me). So when I came across these photo's on style bubble I just had to share them with you.

What You should Know First:
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…
