Meet my summer skirt! Before I moved on to another burda pattern, I thought I’d share another skirt I made based on the pattern from the Alabama Stitch Book. I used the same stencil for the corset top. To use the reverse applique technique I cut out two sets of the same four panel A-line skirt. On this project I also used leftover beads I had from previous jewelry projects to outline the silhoutte of the crane and the clouds. I purposely left some unfinished so that when I have time I will slowly add more beads to the skirt. I think of it as my own version of tatoos, I will add as I see fit and as inspired.
knit from yardage and from recylced tshirts, seed beads, buttonhole thread, fabric paint, stencil
