Still on some of the clothes I made while at Sewjourn, here is a patternless skirt, firstly on the hanger:
and on me:
Neither of these photos do this skirt justice. It moves beautifully, and the drape at the side flows and swings with each step. Mine has a wide fold-over waistband from the same fabric, without elastic in it – I’ve got a pretty thick waist and this works just fine for me. Nikki has some basic instructions for how to make these skirts here. I’m itching to make some more.
I also had a go at a cowl top under Nikki’s guidance. The photo’s a shocker, but it gives you the idea.
Nikki shows the basic design for these tops here. So now I can make some shorter, wider, vary the sleeve shape, vary the depth of the cowl and maybe the width at the shoulders – so much fun to be had! Check out this great version that Kathryn made. And here is a stretch fabric scarf that I think would blend beautifully with these tops and skirts. So many great ideas, and so little time.
