Description

After all the hard work and frustration with the leather vest, and to bring back my enthusiasm for sewing, I made myself a little fun skirt from the leftovers from Aurelia’s dress
I was inspired by the handkerchief skirt, and wanted make a skirt with only the handkerchief bit. But the material bits I had weren’t enough, so I used that idea for the bottom of the skirt, the upper part is the mini skirt shortened.
Again due to limited amounts of material and the challenge of checks, I had to improvise with the waistline bit. My stash revealed a bit of tulle of matching turquoise color to that on the checkered material, so I used a double layer of it on a base of light denim for that and I think it looks quite good.
I didn’t line the skirt, just made facings at the waist.
I’ve already worn this to work today (we have no dress code :) ) and I love it! It’s comfortable and as light as a feather, definitely a winter favorite!

Material Notes

The checkered fabric is a wool/polyester blend.
The waist is tulle sewed on cotton denim
