rabbit skirt ~built by wendy "sew u"

San Francisco, C...






i made this about 5 years ago from the “sew u” built by wendy book. i can’t say enough nice things about this book. the pattern is super simple, just 2 pieces with darts. i really wanted a long comfortable skirt in a neutral color that i could personalize.
i drew and then embroidered the rabbit. added pale green velvet ribbon to a small pocket as well as the back slit.
i actually made a few skirts from this pattern with different embroideries. it’s addictive :D

    How beautifull! The colour of the skirt, green ribbons and that lovely rabbit go together so well! (I’m a huge Beatrix Potter fan and I instantly thought that your rabbit could be Peter;) )

    I’m with Cation on this! I’m so in love with that rabbit jumping into the pocket. I love the idea of taking a relatively formal fabric and bringing it to life! Lovely work :-)

    I love the rabbit and the back ribbon detail! I may need to steal that for a future skirt!
