Description

A quirky twist on the classic marie skirt, made out of Tessuti’s textural ‘Formal Alligator’ fabric. The pleats have been reversed to create a triangle shape and to move the bulk of the fabric away from the middle. Then two ‘bow-tie’ pieces were patterned made to fit into the front waistband, continuing the line of the pleats. The shape of the bow-tie mimics the raised texture of the fabric whilst steering clear of the overused classic bow shape.

Material Notes

‘Formal Alligator’ fabric and 25cm dress zip from Tessuti’s in Surry Hills.

    It looks great. That fabric really suits the skirt, and the additional “bow” is super cute.
