Take me with you to Paris.....

Added Jun 18, 2008

Brisbane, Australia






High waisted skirt with pockets and contrasting gathered band/belt. I made a basic strapless top in a sheer white cotton (lining included) with elastic so I didn’t need a zipper.

Material Notes

Crushed satin, satin and a cotton? I pick my material up from a local shop and half the time I don’t know what I’m buying! But it’s cheap and beautiful!





I created this pattern myself

    This is so creative! Beautiful, and if it was in stores, I would buy it. I’m not a huge fan of the pockets, but it does make it fun.

    Sure, i have a rough sketched up pattern somewhere in my pile of sewing – I’m sure I could upload a pattern with instructions – I’ve just never done it before – but give me some time and I’ll see what I can do :)
