Description

I’ve been planning a skirt like this for months, but I finally got down to it this weekend. It’s an 8-panel gored skirt based on my own pattern. It features my first ever a buttonhole and lapped zipper! I’m quiet proud of this skirt, because I did the whole thing – from pattern to finishing – all on my own.

Apoloogies for the poor quality photo’s, I’ve been using my webcam for photos recently.

Thanks again to my velvet bunny for modelling. I think I’ll make him a feature of all my bedroom photoshoots!
