Midland, Texas, ...
I made the skirt first by folding the allotted fabric four times, half and then half again, then cut an ice cream cone shape from the tip. Next up was the waist, which is a strip of the jersey that I cut into the correct shape and sewed under the bust. Then I took the remaining fabric, cut it into two incredibly long strips, draped them in some pleats at the bust, then sewed those strips to the waist piece. I can wrap the strips any way I feel: in a halter, wrapped around my back, criss-crossed and tied in front… Whatever I feel like when I wear it!
I hope you enjoy it- this is my first piece to upload to BurdaStyle.
light teal jersey, I think it’s organic?, and light teal thread.
