Well, I called this one the Eco skirt, because it is made of naturally-dyed, organic cotton I bought in a shop in Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg. The colour is a bit eco indeed, but I like it very much. I wish there was more fabric like that available, but it still is rare and – of course – expensive…
I made the skirt without a pattern. I sewed a yoke the rest is a simple rectangle of fabric that I gathered and sewed onto the yoke. As I had some fabric left, I made a kind of belt that is fastened on one side, on the other side I tie a knot. I’m still practising to tie it more decorative…
