Fleur de Sea (My Sidonie)
Added Mar 18, 2008
Silk brocade version of Sidonie, fashioned with homemade piping :) I absolutely love how this turned out, my first skirt!
To make this shorter version of the Sidonie skirt, I re-drafted the front and back panels onto new pattern pieces (i must say i love my carbon paper!) and painstakingly matched what i could of the floral design in the fabric. I made piping to emphasize the lines in this skirt.
