West Chester, Pe...
This is my first attempt to sew in my life, EVER! It only took me a lovely 7 hours to learn how to work the sewing machine and to craft this, what I call The Winston Skirt.
NO pattern used, NO half-forms. Just, lots of trial and error and sticking myself with needles.
Not sure what the fabric is, but a thicker bottom material.
2 inch Elastic in the waste band, and a 7 inch Zipper which I chose to leave exposed.

Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.

Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
