i recently made 2 skirts, based on a skirt by australian designer gorman. (i promise i’m not trying to make a habit of copying designer clothes, despite what my last two projects look like)
the skirt was exactly what i had been looking for – a simple and cheap, but very effective, way to add a bit of interest to plain coloured cotton. and the drill i used has a nice stiffness and slight shine, which makes it looks a little bit fancy, while costing all of about $13 per skirt.
the navy and cream skirt is closest to the original skirt in shape, but the black and grey is closest to the original colours (but i played around with pleats instead of gathering and putting some pockets in)
i’d be really interested to know which one you guys like better!
cotton drill in 4 colours, 2 zips and 2 buttons.
