This one is a gift for a party that we are about to head off to.
In the warmer months I made the ruffled skirt as a gift but have switched to this one today as the weather has turned cooler.
This is made in black denim (the same as my bag) and I used some Denyse Schmidt that I have had in my stash for ages as the trim.
|A quick modelling shot before we wrapped it up.|
Now that I know the bias strips for the edging do not actually need to be biased, (as they are going onto straight pieces not curves), I cut them on the straight grain - thus saving some fabric and also meaning they didn't need several joining points in them.
I am very glad I decided to take part in KCWC as it certainly motivated me!!
Thanks to Elsie Marley for hosting and providing lots of lovely inspiration.
One nightie, two skirts, two little bias-trimmed jackets and a long-sleeved T in a week - not bad going if I say so myself.
If you've been playing along leave me a comment so I can come and find out what you got up to.
