Description

(This creation is doomed. I tried to upload it several times and never managed for a reason. Today, when I tried to upload it on this new site, a man came to change our electrometer and turned off the electricity in the middle of my writing.

Therefore, I’ll try to keep it simple and short.)


A home skirt based upon a skirt my mom made for herself a long, long time ago, from a similar fabric. This is a twin of her fabric. But not a twin of her skirt, because that one got worn out long time ago.


It’s just a rectangle of fabric (actually sewn together from more pieces), pleated into a waistband. Embelished with white piping and closed by hooks & eyes (I added another pair since the time of the pictures) and a self-fabric covered button. Quite a simple project, only rather time-consuming. But probably my favourite so far.
