Pff, that took me an aweful long time to finish, though it’s not very difficult. I’m very happy with the result. Carolyn asked in an comment why I hadn’t used a fabric with print or flowers, as that is more “Dries van Nooten” inspired. The simple answer is that I couldn’t find matching fabrics in a colorscheme I like. I was inspired by the boucle fabric and found matching fabrics for that.
In the first picture I’m wearing it in combination with a rtw jacket. All pictures have too much shadow from the flash.
To start with I used the skirt of Vogue 8781, a pattern I want to make a few other items of as well. The skirt has a high waist and I had of course to blend between sizzes.
I made a full pattern for both the back and the front and sketched the lines for the different parts. The faux leather part for example is a part without seams, it goes from the front around the back and then to the front again, so it was a bit careful thinking and planning. As said, I’m happy with the skirt now, though halfway I wasn’t sure about it.
