New York, New Yo...
i made this skirt up for the sew weekly mom’s day challenge, using my nan as inspiration since i already used my mom previously.
unfortunately the memories of my nan and how much i miss her made me so sad, the skirt is full of regret and is UNWEARABLE. i need to find a new home for it!
more on my nan at oonaballoona: in which i figure it out in the end
i used vintage vogue 9172, but the swayback adjustment went awry as the back bodice & skirt were all one piece. so, knowing nan would not want me to abandon ship, i hacked it into a skirt.
invisible side zip & tiebacks.
