I am slowly catching up with blogging - not much to be fair, catching up with sleep has become my priority these days. However when one of my makes appear on a blog, I will make time to read it.
A while ago I had a post about the Tibi skirt - and had found a Butterick pattern that looked quite similar. Well, a skirt was made and now styled by Cee and appeared last week on her stylish blog.
I followed the pattern except for the length - I added 12 cm. The fabric is a dupion silk - in a lovely midnight blue colour. I added horsehair braid (found here) at the bottom to give it more volume - following Gertie's tutorial.
The pattern is not that hard, but the fabric was a bit of a pain, it frays quite easily and I spent some time trying to tidy the seams, and I am still not super happy with it.
However I love the result - what a beautiful skirt for a fraction of the price of the Tibi one. I will try to make one with folds that match the real thing, so stay tune!
