i made leggings out of digital photo fabric about a year ago, and guess what? i wore them on that day when i fell off my bike, and managed to rip the left knee part. well, i could always sew it back, i suppose, but i wore them that day because i noticed that digital photo printed clothes are all the hype these days. i saw lots of cool skirts made out of digi-photo printed cotton fabrics, and suddenly i wanted one!
so i had to make one, naturally.
it’s a cotton satin fabric with a bit of elastane, and i just love the 60s photo print! i used Burda pattern no. 7577, the same one i used for the bottom part of the Dim Sum dress
i made the skirt end just where the slit part is supposed to be, which is like 15 cm shorter than the original pattern.
80 cm of printed cotton satin with a bit of stretch,
25 cm zipper,
1 pair of hook & eye closure.
