Chocolate-CircleSkirt .... "Rock" it - part one

Added Feb 2, 2012

I made a second circle skirt using Casey’s Elegant Musings Sew Along. This skirt is a little bit longer than my first. I used a very heavy cotton in brown, that reminds me of drinking chocolate. To set a contrast I used a red and white gingham for the lining at the waist and the hemline. As accessory I made a bow-belt with the help of the tutorial, that Tilly had written down in her blog (Tilly and the buttons).
In the last picture I wear the skirt without my new petticoat (a wonderful christmas gift).

    Cute! Nice contrast. My teenage daughter would love this (we’re working on her birthday dress, took longer deciding on the petticoat than the dress). Lovely work.

      Dankeschön! (:
      Der Petticoat ist von Doris Designs:

      Wir gehen demnächst in ein französisches Varieté … an diesem Abend will ich den Rock samt Petticoat tragen. Es ist wirklich etwas für besondere Tage.


      The Petticoat is from Doris Designs:

      We will visit a frensh vaudeville (?) and I plan to wear the skirt with the petticoat on that evening. And some other special days and events … (:
