A simple circle skirt I made out of Madras for Colette patterns’ Spring Palette Challenge. I drafted the pattern myself (the first time I draft something!) following instructions I found in a Burda easy fashion magazine, but I guess I would have done exactly the same with the Linda pattern. Another tutorial on how to draft your own circle skirt is available on the website, if I remember correctly.
I cut the waistband on bias and hemmed it with Liberty bias. I love how full it is!
I blogged about it here
Sunny yellow and blue cotton madras, invisible zipper and Liberty of London bias tape, all found around march Saint-Pierre in Paris.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
