3 Prints and a Texture

spiral-skirt-1031

This skirt is totally how I am feeling this fall. I may never take it off. The prints are linen, I think, and the texture is a lightweight cotton. I like the way they blend together. I drafted the pattern myself, and lined it in silk twill.

    The addition of the pleated fabric is genius! Beautiful.

    It’s beautiful! Love all the colours and the texture is genius. That lining is the perfect touch.

    I really love your color palette here, and the styling reminds me of a beloved Vogue pattern, 7302. I really enjoy when you post your designer inspirations. I just like seeing what elements you took from the runway, but how you’ve still made it your own.

    Elizabeth,

    You’re such an inspiration! I don’t think I would ever take it off either. I upholstered my car this year and am just finishing a quilt for my daughter. Then I’ll be ready to sew clothing again. I’ll be checking in on your blog and learning from you. I love your writing as well.

    Ellen
