Description

So finally, here comes my last “masterpiece” (I’m kidding).

I used the 128/march 2012 burda style pattern to sew the skirt, it was very easy to follow until the bows came into my way. I was unable to get the same effect as in the pic. So finally I made up the solution you can see now, the bows can be tied several ways, making a funny baggy look. Anyway, I am pretty happy with the result.
I used an african cotton fabric bought in Paris.

The t-shirt is an upcicled one from my boyfriend, I didn’t use a pattern, and it took a couple of hours to finish.

African cotton.
Old tee shirt.
