Tokyo, Japan






Although it is still freezing here in Tokyo, I couldn’t resist the temptation of making this skirt as I LOVE this design. But!!! I couldn’t make the right side the way I wanted. It was too difficult for me, my pleats didn’t look neat. That is why I had to alter the fabulous asymmetry skirt into a symmetry one. I still like how it looks from behind.

Material Notes

jet-black one, 55% cotton and 45% linen

printed one, 100% cotton

    i have material and the pattern already to go for this skirt also. I plan to wear it with the JJ blouse in matching fabric to a friends wedding this summer. I can’t wait to get started. Nice job! Love the color combo.

    Beautiful! I really like your version. Great fabrics, great fit. I’m keen to make my own symmetrical version. Thanks for this idea!
