My skirt "Chanel"

Hello, needlewomen!

My recent mass-market shopping trip showed that fashion is cyclical. Tweed and fringe again in trend! In the Zara store, I saw a dress in the same style as the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which I was inspired to sew an A-line skirt. I sewed this skirt in the fall of 2018. I made the pattern myself, on the basis of a pencil skirt. The simulation turned out to be simple. You can see for yourself by watching my tutorial.

For sewing, I used the rest of the fabric from the last project “Sleeveless coat”. This is a dense wool fabric with print “houndstooth”. I love geometric prints, besides this ornament is considered an ageless classic. At one time he was brought into fashion by Edward VIII. The Duke of Windsor, along with his wife Wallis Simpson, often appeared at social events and parties in suits from fabric “houndstooth”.

Continuing the tradition, this print was chosen by Princess Diana, and now Kate Middleton wears it with pleasure. Fashion designers are also not lagging behind. This season, the “houndstooth” on the podium was shown by Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Ralph&Russo, Balenciaga and White-off. Therefore, I can safely recommend this ornament to everyone who doubts their choice!

Since the fabric was a little, my skirt turned out above the knee. To lengthen it a bit, I added a fringe of the same material. I decorated two small pockets by similar decorative trim. The result was a stylish, comfortable thing for every day!

These photos were taken by my sister during the golden autumn. Then the bright sun shone, and the whole earth was covered with a carpet of golden leaves. For a walk, I chose an image in the style of the 80s, the main accent of which was the new “Chanel” skirt.

I think that spring mood will prompt me new ideas in creating bright and original outfits with this skirt.
