Roses in bloom
September 22, 2009 § 3 Comments
After nearly giving up on finding a nice black and white print fabric for a spring skirt, I finally found this white on black, (subtle, ok fine, ‘some what subtle’) rose print twill.
I knew, straight away what I wanted to do with it, a short, high waisted(duh!), pleated skirt with pockets (because pockets make EVERYTHING better!). And that’s exactly what I did for most of Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Only to realise it was missing something…I tried bows, hemming it higher(sounds bad but you’d be surprised, sometimes an inch can make all the difference), making the band at the top shorter, and finally it hit me (like a ton of bricks): Tulle! Well a tulle underskirt.
