It is so simple, I know, but never got to try making these skirts.
Now I made half a dozen (not for me though!) and I cannot stop.
For these skirts I used a linen-viscose mix fabric. It flows nicely and looks great in summer.
I used different trimmings for the skirt hem (bias tape and lace) and skirt belt (lace, bias tape in red and blue). The ribbons are cut longer so that to make a tie bow at the back, to create a corsage. Therefore the waist is adjustable. Very handy when you meet your models after you make the garments!!
Easy and fun to make.
I am showing three adult skirts at different lengths and a girl’s skirt (waist size 59 cms).
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
