This skirt is made out of a remnant left over from a pair of trousers I sewed for someone else about 7 years ago. I draped it on the form first, then cut it out, just two pieces for the skirt and four pieces for the waistband. There were some problems with the waistband, but overall I’m pleased with it. I think it will get some wear, at least!
The flower (which I know doesn’t quite go with the lace top) was made from an old tie and a button which I covered.
Stretch fabric, very cheap, a delight to work with. I bought it ages ago from the fabulous Bits Of Cloth in Brixton, London. They’ve closed down now but the fabric goes on!
