Playing around with a pattern can give you many looks.
I’m preparing for my Minerva make so these two stash fabrics finally got used, for a good purpose. I’ve chosen a John Kaldor print that will be fully lined and have pockets.
Here’s my February project choice. Now to figure out the best use of this pattern.
Version 1 is the medium size using what I thought was a slub viscose fabric from The Fabric Store. I later found out it is silk. I love how this fabric feels especially in this heat.
Close up the fabric has white in the weave and that really caught my eye. The pattern has no pockets but I decided to add them on the next version to see if they worked.
I took out 5cm from the skirt length at the front and back.
This is the actual skirt length of the pattern.
I was happy with the back fit.
Here’s number two with the shorter skirt hem.
I bought this cotton remnant from Pitt Trading so the challenge here was matching the stripes.
Can you see that I also added pockets from Deer and Doe’s Belladone dress?
Maybe now you can see the pockets.
Onto the black and white version.
