Description

After reading nikkishell’s page “Sewing for others?” (I know, I’m a bit slow, it was written back in Sept 08) and spotting a nifty tutorial on theclosetseamstress’s blog, I decided it was time to sew a skirt for mum. I added interfacing to the waistband for improved durability and shape. I also added a contrast black wide band at the hemline to highlight the elaborate pattern at the skirt and compliment the waistband. I also found cute little black and white shell buttons for the double-button closure at the waistband.

Material Notes

black satin, black and white patterned crepe-backed satin, iron-on interfacing for waistband, invisible zipper, 2 X small black and white shell buttons

    It’s gorgeous! Your mum looks beautiful in the skirt. I love the fabric and the band on the waist matching the hem.

    i agree with gillthecat. your mum looks so pretty! the skirt is extremely beautiful, too. if I were you, I could not give it away but wear it by myself.

    p.s. I like your mum’s jacket. where is it from? mb. also selfmade??

      Hi Lovely Polly,
      Mum reckons she picked the cardigan up from a random small boutique. Thanks for your encouraging comments!
