Circle skirts are my favorites to stitch and my daughter’s favourite to wear.
For me, the drafting and cutting are simple.
For her, the waves generated in twirling and spinning gives her happiness.
I had cut this circle skirt for my niece but then postponed to stitch and soon she outgrew the size.
I was hoarding it as I loved the print and did not know to re-purpose.
So after quite some time, I used the same circle pattern as frock skirt.
The yoke material is from Nalli Silks from Marthahalli.
The shop has good collection of cotton materials if someone is interested.
The yoke I drafted from an earlier frock.
Anyone is interested for such frocks.
I can make for commission.
Sorry no progress on the Sneak Peak project. I think I played with my stars :-). It is still in same state. I have not got the courage to stitch it. But I did stitch something quick.
But I had 4 days holidays last week.Thursday was bandh and Friday was holiday for May 1st. No planned getaways so stayed at home and finished a frock from start to finish.
It took close to 5 hours with numerous timeouts in between.
And another plus is, these came from my stash. And how it came to my stash, it was hand-me-down from my cousin who was an avid sewist some years before.
The dark brown was silk like material which had shine and softness and the bright orange print material is from a saree.
( Above pic was taken before the yo-yo was added. See I said right, many timeouts in between 😀 )
I mix and matched them to make a frock with dark top and floral flounce.
Just to add little color to the plain top, again a some frills on the neck line and a yo-yo flower on the middle. I did not add a button on purpose as my daughter has the habit of meddling with the button and somehow remove it.
Happy with my Upcycling.
How was your long weekend? Did you go anywhere or get crafty ?
