This is a page of stuff I have made for me! I'm turning into a real skirt person!
|My Very Posh silk dress and the jacket made from a sari. I've lost a lot of weight since then...|
|Me in my Christmas & New Year outfit, 2003/4. Another sari I hacked to bits! And the crushed panne velvet dress to go under it...|
|Here's my lovely
winter coat! The fabric has matured in the stash for 12 years, as
has the pattern. I finally got round to it during a week when I
needed to make a quick project to get back into the swing of the sewing!
January 15th 2006.
|At last! The
'mock polyester' skirt! This one is dry-clean only 100% silk crepe
de chine, bought by mistake! (I thought it was polyester.)
But it did make a lovely skirt, and the wrap Lycra top isn't too bad
either. Now I just need a garden party to go to...
This one was made for new year 2004/5, but not worn, and then I got too small for it and had to get Mum to pin about 3" out of the waist!
|One of two skirts I made for me using my new Issey Mayaki pattern from Vogue. This is a stretch woven polyester suede fabric. I love this one, and almost live in it! The best thing is it needs no ironing when I wash it.|
|A new skirt and a new pattern! This is another Vogue one, made with lapped raw edge seams, a bit of a departure for me! There's another version of this skirt here. Just scroll down to see it.|
