My little sister asked for a skirt that had to be:
- pratical and long lasting
- adapt (also) for the “50’s festival” that takes place each summer in the nearby.
I cut and sew an half circle skirt in dark denim and – to complete the said 50’s look – a detachable petticoat (underskirt) in peach pink chiffon.
The petticoat has no zipper, just a scarf cut and sew as waistband.
More details on my blog: Ri-Twenty
FOR THE SKIRT: cotton denim;
FOR THE PETTICOAT: chiffon, a foulard
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
