I finished making an outfit for the weekend. I was reading through Tilly Walnes’s Love at first stitch and wanted to make a gathered skirt that is featured in the book. I didn’t have enough fabric to follow the same pattern as in the book so I reduced the amount of fabric and made a skirt from a fabric that has been in my fabric stack for about 15 years!
as you’ll can see I added side pockets to the side seams and I love the versatility it offers. The crop top is something i found in a street market here in Sri Lanka about 3-4 years back. they were selling the crochet panels and and all I had to do was joining them from the shoulder seams and side seams.
I love the total look although I look a bit plump when I wear it. But anyhow I will be wearing it out soon!
Till next time…
