50´s: pink birds´ skirt

Bizkaia, Spain






This kind of skirts are in fashion again, but now they´re like miniskirts. The main features of this kind of skirts were, the narrow waist and his volume.
I found the right pattern in “Patrones” magazine (311 Patrones, 18.Falda Naranja). I sewed it, longer than magazine´s pattern, and I had to reduce below detail.

    I’ve long ogled this fabric at IKEA, but could never think of what to do with it. Thanks for the lovely inspiration!

    Fantastic, and the fabric really brings this to life! I was hoping to find something like this in a recent trip to Ikea, but was not so lucky. :)

      When I started, I thought that maybe it had a exagerated volume, but I was wrong ;-)
