Experimental Pattern Free Skirt

This is made from a fairly heavyweight linen from one of the shops in Goldhawk Road, London.

I started with this altered skirt

I measured the length, width, waist, size of the splits and looked at how the skirt had been shaped.

I transferred the measurements to the linen fabric and cut out the two rectangles.

I sewed the rectangles together, leaving the side slits open and a space for the zip open.

I made pleats in the waist by marking them with a ruler & chalk & then sewing at the top only.

I sewed in the zip – I recycled this from an old skirt.

I covered the waist with bias binding – lovely satin stuff – leftover from a previous project.

I finished the slits and hemmed the skirt.

The top was also pattern free.  Details to follow.
