Since the beginning of winter, I’ve been wanting a long circle plaid skirt. But I couldn’t find any cheap and nice fabric…
And after a while, I wasn’t able to resist anymore and bought that one, even though it was more expensive than what I usually spend on fabrics!
When I cut the skirt, the waist turned out too big, I guess the fabric stretched on the biais… So I gathered it a little at the waist. Actually it’s not too bad : it gives it a little fullness.
I covered a button and made a bridle for it. I love this technique!
Then I wanted to match it with a bolero. But I wasn’t convinced by the patterns I had, so I gave an other shot at that tubic bolero I made once…
I made it too large, so I made some pintucks at the back and experimented these seams upward and downward as I saw once on a shirt… It’s nice, but I think I made them a little too big.
And finally I decided to add ties to hold it at the neck, and now it looks like a little cape!
Fabric, button, tread, zipper.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
