This is my version of the A-Plus A-Line skirt. I bought a piece of machine sewn patchwork-fabric (1×1m) on a fabric market in Nimwegen, Netherlands not knowing what to do with it. The A-Plus, A-Line pattern is the ideal solution. I cut the patchwork at it’s hems into stripes and added black cotton fabric and got a long scarf, patchwork and cotton alternating. On the backside it looks the same.
Then I used the black stripes to border the patchwork seams. The rest of the cotton in between I formed into pleats, as you see on the photo. The yoke is made from black corduroy-velvet. To give it an interesting look I added a string-fastening with metal eyelets. At the left side-seam is a short zipper.
