Den Haag, Nether...
a simple A-line skirt which I made as a suprise for a friend who is pregnant (I took the picture just before I put it in a package and took it to the post office, so no idea whether it fits and/or she likes it…). I used the same fabric as I did for my own red skirt, but cut it on the straight grain this time (not enough left to cut it at an angle). She doesn’t live close and I wanted it to be a suprise, so I had to rely on guess work for sizing, but she was always a bit smaller at the hip than I am, and told me last week she ‘no longer had her old size’, so I made it fit me at the hip and put on a straight band of soft and very stretchy rib knit. This should stretch comfortably across a growing ‘bumb’ and can also be folded over, to sit under it, while still keeping the skirt up. Because I couldn’t get rib knit in the same colour as the fabric, I took black and added some black piping which I had in my trim stash.
