It seems to be a week of tidying ends up.
The stainless steel skirt is finally finished. I thought it was finished, and indeed wore it for a week before reconsidering and embellishing. It now sports a flap that was rescued from an old backpack many years ago and has been waiting for a suitable host.
It now features – though nobody will ever really notice I suppose, rickrack on the lining to cover the hemline that I wasn’t really happy with (decorative though it was)…
It is now ready to be partnered with the obi that was sourced from Kazari during the week – instead of the one I had planned to fashion myself. I will still fashion one myself, but it is magnificent to be wearing an antique ‘real-deal’ child’s one, and to feel the weight and shape of it before making one myself.
This stainless steel fabric is just delightful, and another skirt will be attempted – slightly longer with a panel at the hem, when I have some time later in the week. Kirsten did a great job with hers – check out the bustle detail. Superb. 🙂
I’m off to finish a jumper…..
