I made my second one from an apple print needle cord which I managed to nab when Kitschy Coo was selling off some of her stash. Kitschy Coo makes children's clothes and I think the fabric was originally used for that purpose. Now, the thought of a 42 year old woman dressed in children's clothes does conjure up images of horror, but the muted colours and Orla Kiely-esque print made me think I could just about get away with making it into a skirt.
|Spot the deliberate mistake...|
The needle cord is quite thin and I was concerned about it riding up when wearing tights, so a lining was required. I just happened to have some left over from my jacket that was the perfect colour - yay.
Scruffy Badger who gave me the idea. I made an exact copy of the skirt with lining fabric, but didn't sew up the centre back seam.
The light is shocking at the moment for photographing garments, but the background of the fabric is actually a dark chocolatey brown. So I can wear it with brown tights and boots. And a big, mad necklace....
