I had a little bit of black jersey left after making my Accidental Aladdin Pants, so I used it as the top portion of this convertible dress/skirt. Heady with the success of my last successful Japanese sewing book project, I decided to try another pattern from the Feminine Wardrobe Book, number E3. I really liked the unique shape of the skirt, which is like a less complicated version of Communing With Fabric's tablecloth skirt.
|It's a very simple idea, really.|
|Not that you can really tell in this busy, drape-y rayon, but there are these neat little corners!|
|Can you tell that I'm just sort of uncomfortable wearing this?|
|Right after taking these pictures, we ran into a friend of ours. It was the most uncomfortable twenty minute conversation ever, which just goes to show that there needs to be some kind of overhaul of the top if I'm ever going to wear this out.|
Fabric: 2 yards of rayon, from my trip to Michael Levine Loft with Oonaballoona, 1/3 yard of black jersey with a significant lycra content.
Notions: Seam binding for the insides of the skirt
Hours: Three, including cutting and sewing and endless baby hemming
Will you make it again? Nope. And I can't even think of anything clever to say about it, either.
Total cost: $5, if even.
Final thoughts: I'm pretty sure this is the briefest write-up I've ever done. I guess this is what happens when something is so meh.
|Even these pictures are meh. They all look the same because I was afraid to raise my arms!|
I'm kind of sad that this is how I'm ending my May stashbusting, but hopefully you all have some gorgeous makes that you can be more excited about. Here's your chance to share your projects!
