So I went to visit UK this summer and visited this cute fabric shop Ray and Stitch that was great, I almost spent a whole afternoon there… There it was: wonderful elastic cotton from Liberty that did not look like typical Liberty.
For the skirt I had kept this silk velvet leftover from a tapestry shop for ages, till I was assigned to a project in Netherlands, and decided I needed a cozy yet smart for the office.
So here is the result.
I drew all the patterns, very easy to sew, but I tried my best on the trimming.
Elastic t-shirt cotton. Bias tape. Silk velvet.
