The recent long independence day weekend holiday called for: DIY projects!!!
I just bought this black/white plaid, like the Balinese sarong pattern. I was planning to make a wavy skirt, inspired by VintageBella
But like always, I let the fabric inspires me. I can’t plan to buy a certain fabric for the sketch I have in my mind, because the sooner I stepped to the fabric store and see all those colorful fabrics, the faster I forget my plan. I was overwhelmed with these many ideas I have in mind to work on those fabrics. And I also change my plans along the sewing process. In reality, I don’t change my mind that easily. Weird.
Starting this project, I was torn between making a tulip skirt or a zipper skirt. I love both, but I don’t know what to choose. I might be influenced subconsciously by kurarin’s reversible top, because suddenly I was hearing this voice in my head: “Do both!”
“ I must be going crazy, I can’t do both, I don’t have enough fabric.” I was thinking.
“No, do a Side A/Side B skirt!”, said whoever that was in my head.
“You know what, that sounds like a great idea”.
So, here it is, DIY reversible skirt by yours truly:
Right: Tulip skirt
Used the Marie skirt pattern from Burda. First time I used a pattern. The instruction is as complicated as how-to-make-rocket instruction, but I skip the technical parts, and figured some things out myself. I turned out disasterous, hehehe.
Left: Zipper skirt
A tulip shape skirt with an exposed zipper. First time I did a zipper. Yeay!
Dang, I forgot to put in pockets! I’m too lazy to open up all the stitches. I hate doing anything twice. I’ll put my hands in something else then…..
PS: If you stop by, don’t forget to click on the chic boxes, dearies! Any box of your liking ofcourse….
