Damage Control Skirt


Attempted to make a skirt the other day using my newly drafted skirt patterns. However, I failed to recognize that the wool I bought was loosely weaved, so there is a LOT of room for stretching side ways. It ended up being ridiculously big, so i had to do some damage control. After a few hours of cursing and searching through my fabric pile for lining, I made this! Its kind of cute, and I kind of like it, but I only wore it once so far. I was going to throw this into the give-away pile, but my fiance threatened to never take fashion photos for me again if I did, because he likes it. So I guess I am keeping it! 😉

Its sort of just the outershell and lining sewn together, plus a few fabric covered buttons. To say the truth, I dont even remember what I was trying to make before the transformation!

Have you ever made something that took its own course?

  1. Oh yeah! When I start making earrings, what I end up with is always so different from what I imagined. I don’t know about you, but I find it very therapeutic =) Love your skirt btw! I like the flare at the bottom, the length on you and the fabric-covered buttons!

  2. I.LOVE.THIS.SKIRT. I’m really hoping you change your mind about it and wear it often. 🙂 So did you draft it entirely yourself, or just kind of alter a commercial pattern (which one?)?

  3. You forgot to mention how it’s a very versatile skirt: it’s reversible AND it can be used as a short cloak. 😉

    I once tried to make pandan chiffon cake but it ended up being just pandan cake without the chiffon part when the whole cake slid out of the pan and deflated. But it was still really yummy!

  4. This is a gorgeous skirt, and a neat design! Did you draw up a pattern for it? How can I get a copy of it, or something similar?
