I'm on a roll!

Yes people, I made a skirt which also functions as a top!

It's very simple to make, I don't even have a sewing machine in my flat so I sewed it by hand.

To make the patterm you will need: Nothing, what pattern? I did it off the top of my head. :)




It has an elasticated waist band , here's a closeup of the finished look. Unfortunately I did not have the patience to take a photo's during the process, but I have plenty more fabric and will show you how I made it in a later post.


It also has clean seams, with no need for overlocking.

Now I have a skirt / top, headband and bangle from the same fabric, needless to say when I wear this out I know i'm going to get asked where I purchased it from :)
