The 2 wide pockets have also been replaced by a small square one. One reason is that I didnt have enough chambray fabric for this skirt who requires a lot of fabric, being a wrap skirt. Another one is that I felt a big bow added bulk and didnt work for me. I think I tried to take this skirt from the 70s to the 60s...
I chose a pinky red chambray and used a pale lavender shirt fabric for the contrast.
(if I look tired and hungover, thats because I was!)
(You can also blame the photographer husband for the slight wonkiness of the photos. hmmm)
So why I hear you scream, did you chose to make a high waisted skirt? Well, I love Tilly's patterns. And I thought it would work better for me than what you see here.
So even though I love the fabric, contrast and buttons, I do not think the shape does much for me. ie it puts emphasis on my mid section: belly and derriere, area that my low waisted 60s skirts are so good at slimming...
Yep thats much more me. I havent done the necessary transformations yet, just tucked everything under my top and red belt here but I would like to :
-lower the pocket
-place the 2 buttons on each side of the pocket as they are a cute detail in exactly the right color.
-turn the wraparound bulkiness into a cute a line mini, ie chop off some fabric around the waist.
Do I have to be sent to bloggers hell for daring to hack into a 'Tilly from the sewing Bee' pattern?!
Nah, she 'd agree with my stlylistic choices surely.
Viva les 60s, mes cheris!
