Back in July I had made up this Gypsy skirt from Liberty tana lawn, I loved the soft warm colours of this print as they reminded me of fields of wheat. I drafted the skirt myself with a flat waistband at the front and elastic at the back for comfort. I put a zip in the side seam but later realised it was entirely unnecessary as the skirt can pull on and off without undoing it!- doh! I wanted the tiers to get nice and full at the bottom as I love gypsy skirts so much and wanted to make sure the style was nicely celebrated!

I am wearing the skirt with a new cami I made using the Sew Over It Silk Cami pattern and double weight silk crepe. I was keen to try the cami pattern out as I naturally veer towards binding rather then facings on tops like these so wanted to see how I liked the facing in this instance.

Anyway for a fuller review and more photos please take a look at my sewing blog
