She wanted to do it as a gathered yoke skirt (like this one I made for D), and I found a dark brown gabardine for the yoke that matched perfectly with the brown in the fabric.
Now I'm working on skirts for a mother and daughter client pair. They are both using a similar idea - a dark wash denim skirt with contrasting fabric at the hem and pockets - but each has it's own twist. The mother wants a pencil skirt with a wide waistband and a zipper slit at the back, and she chose a faux suede for the trim. Here it is before the fitting (and I haven't attached the pockets yet, so they aren't really uneven!):
The daughter wants an above-the-knee A-line with small slits at each side seam. Here's the fabric she picked out:
I love this print! It's called Scales Grey by Brandon Mably (it coordinates with another lovely fabric called Fish Lips).
I'm happy to get the bias tape maker out again as I haven't used it since making E's funky skirt. We'll see what I get up to now that it's back in action . . .
That's it for the week, Readers. Have a great weekend! Onward, ho!
