Trio of peasant style skirts

I made a cotton peasant style skirt in blue with 2 matching tops this summer – so I can mix and match. I liked it so much that I made one using SARI fabric stored in the attic ( the observant among you will note that I used the leftover for the summer dress project ) and made a matching waistcoat. Then whilst browsing in Oxfam I saw these 2 red fabrics ,- so I purchased them cheaply, washed them and made this red skirt ,- there was no fabric left ! The red one was very see- through so I had to make a red slip to wear beneath.

    Thanks for pointing our your skirts, Katensew. Just looking at them, especially the red one, I can see that this style can work well as something other than a casual skirt. Something I wondered about. Your beautiful creations help answer that question!

    Your tops look great. Is this a new pattern or one of those patterns we “never” throw away? Are the leaves on the red skirt appliqued? Cordially, Nehmah

      Hello there,
      the pale blue top was from a commercial pattern( Butterick ) I have also made it up in gold lame ( can’t do the thing on top !! ) It is completely self lined and I made it by leaving the side seams open and turning it through. Makes an ideal top on it’s own or can be worn as a waistcoat with a blouse beneath. The other tops are just self-designed. The leaves are not appliqued but printed in a lovely white/silver finish – others have thought that too !!
