Anyhow... sewing? yeah. So, I mentioned a little while ago that I screwed up my knee... well, its still not playing nice and it turns out I stand a *lot* when I sew (fittings, tracking things down, moving between surfaces, you name it) so there hasn't been much going on. Most of my sewing is theoretical and revolves around how I could get away with flouncing about in things like this on a regular basis.
|Sheer and white, with a train --- not sure how it could get more impractical.|
On a slightly more practical note, I seem to have developed a thing for ruffles and layers.
|seems to be from a Burda preview that has escaped|
The Burda skirt really looks like a regular A-line with a rectangular layer plopped on top. I've gotten it in my head that is *must* be dove gray cotton gauze, which of course I cannot find. So, we shall see. Perhaps light weight regular cotton....
The other skirt is actually a children's pattern from Violet Fields Threads, but I rather like the concept. It also looks fairly simple to create, with an A-line base with a few layers of ruffles (at least in front) and a cut-away wrap skirt on top.
