Description

Aah, memories… this was one of my first projects. I didn’t use patterns, just measured it on myself as I went along, experimenting with such features as the pleat! Very happy with the outcome in light of this. Anyway, here’s the general description:

I used an awkwardly sized piece piece of unwanted houndstooth fabric n(woven, rather than printed). I made this to wrap around the hips, with 3 tiny fasteners to hold it closed. It sits comfortably on or just above the hips. A soft golden pom pom on the hip adds a little unexpected sparkle (incidentally, an unwanted item from my childhood). I think the back pleat really does add a dramatic effect!

The background colour is beige, with interweaving red and blue houndsteeth (heh!).
