Bow Obsession

Added Apr 30, 2013

Recently checking my closet and realized that I have more dresses than skirts or pants. So I am embarking on a new journey to produce more of those.

I had this wool for quite sometime in my stash and didn’t know what to do with it. So here is a skirt with a big bow that makes it pop! I use a basic burda block to create it with my very own modification. The length was shorten a bit to sit right at my knees and four carriers were added so that I can wear it with a fine belt. It is a straight-cut pencil skirt with back slit that creates a nice clean line on the body.

Love how it turned out….happy me and I wear it to work today :-)

What do you think? Are you liking it too?

      Thanks Liliv! I strategically place the bow at an angle and stitch it at the top and at the side. The other two ends I tack it on the inside.

      It is definitely worth trying….I am looking out for your version soon :-)
