Purple and chocolate

Athens, Greece






For the top I used a rtw as a guide and for the skirt the model 107 from Burda 8/2009. I made the belt using faux leather, the skirt is cordruory. Initially I planned to make the skit without the belt so I skipped the pockets and now I regret it, I think that two faux leather pocket plackets would be lovely!! Maybe I will add some faux!

    I think it came out very nice. I think it’s fine the way it is.

    Ooh! I miss my corduroy skirt and this lovely one of yours has made me miss it even more! It looks fantastic with the purple top! My favourite chocolate (Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut!) has the same colour combination so the name you’ve given it is perfect!

      :))) very sweet comment!!! really!! I had the same thought when I wore the top with the skirt, my mum told me that the skirt would look better with a more bright top but I said that I had seen this combo at some chocolates!!

    Purple with brown looks stunning! The skirt is very nice: the buttons act their part greatly, the silhoette is flattering and the cordruory looks like a suede ( it was exactly what I thought about the fabric before reading). I don’t think it’s worth regretting about missing pockets, by the way – you’d take a risk to overload the skirt with details.

      Oh really you think it’s better without many details? This was my first thought when I decided to skip the pockets, I wanted to keep the fabric clean and simple. I will rethink about it after reading your comment. Anyway I’m very glad you like the color combo, I liked it too. And the fabric is really pretty and soft with very thin lines. You will be jealous if I will tell you the price: it was 1 euro per meter in several colors and I bought in purple as well. I regret I didn’t buy the black too.

      I’m pretty jealous about both the cost of your fabric and your skirt, the pattern of which I saw the first time on you only and think where I was when the issue appeared:-))

      I had missed that issue too! But it was my mum who bought it, I stole it from her:)

    The outfit’s lovely on you liliv. The skirt is gorgeous and i do.love the buttons. I.love faux leaher so much and think a piece or two on the skirt would just add to it. I used to be frightened of sewing leather and faux leather but since using it i’m in love x

      This particular faux leather is very easy to handle. And I think I will add some more leather details. Thank you very much Mary, I do love these buttons too, but now I’m thinking of replacing them with some faux leather ones!

    You look great in purple liliv, and you did a good job with the skirt. I agree that with some faux leather accents it would be more interesting.

    Lovely skirt Liliv. It will be perfect for winter and I think if you add more faux leather, you will really it into a very special skirt. The purple top looks great with chocolate corduroy.

      Yes, I think that some more faux leather would make it more balanced. Thank you for the kind words sweetie!
