Lookbook – item 1

Blue Floral Skirt

My first lookbook item, was the lovely blue and red floral skirt.  I picked the fabric up very cheaply ($3/m) and decided it would be perfect for a fuller skirt with a wide waistband.   This skirt paired up very nicely with my fitted red top, red shoes and red handbag, for a sunny 25C day!

Sewing notes:  the skirt is a basic rectangle with pockets at the side seams, a 5cm waistband, centreback seam and zip.  The gathers are made by pleating the skirt to 60% of it’s overall width.
