A Little Glittering

Added Sep 16, 2013

by Oksana Starz...

Mykolayv, Ukraine






A bias skirt, pretty long, slightly widened to the bottom, very simple: flattering for any figure and any sewing skills. And I hope it will be good to wear regularly if I found enough things to match:-))
I refused from the facing for the hem because my fabric is dense enough just to make double rolling. But the top edge is processed with facing exactly because of the same reason – my fabric is dense enough to use elastic.
Now, after taking pictures, I think that I had to narrow it to the top because I got it quite loose at the waist and it will probably live on its own life rotating around me:)

The blouse is not new – from Burda 2/2005, #127.

Material Notes

Stretch cotton sateen, the right side is very shining as if it’s silk.
Crepe-georgette for the blouse.

    I like very mush the skirt but I fell in love with the blouse! Do you know about the Chaos Theory and butterfly effect? Your blouse just caused an earthquake in Greece:P. Please post all your projects not only the new ones!!! (If you have the time of course)

      That was easy to fall in love in those islands: they are so beautiful! It was a real dream-vocation.

    The skirt is classic and chic, it goes well with the top, they have the same colour elements. And I love your top, so delicate, the fabric is great!

      Thank you! The fabric is really delicate and as it is transparent, I omitted the interfacing for the front edges, at the same time the buttons are pretty heavy so the front edges of the blouse are soft and it always tempts me to pin them to the bra: your blouse keeps the shape:-)

      Thank you, Ellen! The skirt is really universal and very simple, took me few hours to make what is very important now when Iā€™m busy at work.
