Looking for something interesting in my cockloft I found lovely flowery vintage curtain and decided to upcycle it, give a new life in my wardrobe:) So the firt idea was to make some A-line gathered skirt, kinda my “black skirt”: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/the-most-desirable-black-skirt
But when I did it and tried on, I didn’t like it: the fabric was to stiff and it didn’t look nice to my body type figure. So i started to narrow it to kinda pencil skirt. And I ended up with gathered pencil skirt. While narrowing I had to remove a zipper and sew it again. I’m quite happy with the result;)
From the leftovers I’m making a handbag, so I’ll end up with a set of skirt and matching handbag:)
vintage old curtain, invisible zipper, lot of patience…:)
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
