Description

This was definitely a never ending project. I made the whole skirt, and every detail twice, everytime there was something not working. It really drove me crazy. I hope the result is not that bad at all, I think I solved every mistake I did with my creation. To do the skirt I used an old pattern of Burda 2003 and then I modified it to obtain a pencil skirt. With this project I realize how patient I’ll have to be!

For the blue/red flower I used the fantastic Hana Kanzashi Tutorial :

    I love this and would totally love to wear it at work. I will definitely copy the idea of brooch.

    No – the result isn’t bad at all but feminin and elegant.
