this is a skirt made from handwoven swiss fabric. it is traditionally used for the tracht – the traditional costume in switzerland. i guess i made more of a tartan skirt out of it. i actually made the skirt a couple of years ago but recently learned the reverse bobbin technique where you can used many beautiful thicker threads but you sew the garment on the left side (you can use more different material in the bobbin rather than on top). so i fancy-stitched the edges of the skirt a little while ago. i think it just adds an extra little something. the pattern was supposed to just look like a wrap skirt but i actually changed it to a wrap skirt. man i really wish i would have ironed it before shooting it!
