I never got around to blog about more things I made for myself. So here's a little update. Ta daa: #6 aka thrifted hat spiced up with embroidery and application
& #7 linen skirt with ehm ... bieser - sorry, don't know the english term for that.
I thrifted this lovely old angora/wool hat, but felt kind of old wearing it (know what I mean?) so I had to do something. A little embroidery and a lot of tiny plant dyed felt leaves did the trick, I think.
Didn't use any pattern or anything, just picked up a needle and went ahead. The pic doesn't do it justice, I'm rather satisfied with it actually.
No less than three pics needed to show you this ultra simple skirt! I had some lovely brown linen fabric in my stash, which I probably bought for making pants for one of the children.
Cut on the bias, elastic in waist and finished with .. eh, bieser. I don't think I've made a skirt for myself since school! So stupid of me, this was so quick and easy - and fun too! I didn't even buy a pattern, just traced another skirt I liked.
I love my new skirt. I restrained from adding flower power pockets and other fancy stuff, I think I'd ruin the simple organic tree-like quality doing so. But there better be some more fabric in that stash for another skirt, so I can go crazy with my new bias tape maker thingy :)
