I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from left:
- Medium weight denim
- Chocolate grosgrain ribbon stitched in place
- Start of some (wobbly) hand-stitching in cream
- Ribbon scraps and petersham rosettes, awaiting placement
Welcome to the House of Hoppo Bumpo, home of the slipshod garment.
This week I present to you the makings of a skirt. I've traced the pattern from another well-worn A-line skirt. It is cut from two pieces, has a facing rather than a waistband, darts at the back and a side zipper. The shape is strangely wobbly - possibly mirroring my body shape.
The fabric and ribbon embellishments are bargain basement bits and pieces from the stash. The embroidery in progress is dodgy.
