Decided to use McCalls 5591 - View A but not using a different colour at the hemline. The design was quick and easy, as I need it for work.
|Japanese Cotton - with trim hand sewn at hemline|
I had purchased this Japanese cotton fabric about 1 year ago, at Tessuti Melbourne, and was going to make a dress but decided it would look better on me as a skirt.
I am really happy with the result and I can dress this up or down. Am currently making a black top which will work really well, teamed with a cream cardigan - I might take a picture wearing both, when finished.
|Material, hemline and lining|
Whilst in Tessuti Melbourne fell in love with the Fendi range of linings. Chose this grey/silver striped for the lining - could have gone cream, but felt like doing something out of the norm - I do like this contrast and the edging of the hemline is so pretty - gives the skirt a vintage feel. I am now looking at hemlines in a different way - hmmm - this could become an obsession.
Oh - now I need shoes!!!!!
