a new skirt!

By spotogspindel | March 10, 2010

I´ve been playing around with my sewing machine today. I made a copy of the UNO-skirts we used in Brytningstid. I had this wonderful lime-and-pink rayon fabric that´s been lying around for years, and it was just enough fabric for the skirt.

It doesn´t really show on the pictures, but the pattern is a true puzzle, and you really need a finished one to see how it´s been put together. See how different the colors look at night!? Now the lime has turned to gold. And the pink to burgundy.

Back to day-light:

It looks a bit of a drag when it´s on the stand. They look much better when they are worn by a moving body. It´s a bit long, so I either need to wear high heels, or pull it up on one side with a flower.

Hm. Maybe this should be part of my pirate-costume that I am making for myself.
