This is actually an old project, but I never took pictures of it until yesterday, so I figured I might as well post it now. I got my hands on some white and black polka-dot material, and decided it would work much better in pieces on a garment then as one big thing. So I turned the polka dot polyester into round appliques, and machine stitched them down onto a brown skirt. The effect puts me in mind of cookies. It’s not my neatest bit of sewing, but I love wearing it. It’s very fun.
The skirt itself is a brown cotton twill. The black fabric with white spots is a polyester. The zipper on the back should have been an invisible zipper, but I didn’t have one at the time, and I wanted to put my notions stash to good use.
