They’re so classic. So pretty. So Comfortable.
Almost a full circle, my full skirts are sewn with 16 panels. Each panel wide at the bottom, narrower at the top for less fabric and a more flattering fit.
The silver skirt above is sewn from a beautiful kimono silk with just enough sheen to show off the piecing. It’s worn with a jacket appliquéd with my little square dots. The ‘turtle back’ design in the jacket fabric inspired the piecing in the skirt.
Below, a skirt sewn from a ‘meisen’ striped silk. I did not match the stripes on the seams because I wanted to add a subtle vertical element. It works, don’t you think?
It’s shown with a ‘hitoe’, my unlined jacket/blouse, printed with a bold pine needle and branch design.
Black and white with bits of red, you cannot go wrong with that color combination.
These and so many more jackets, coats and scarves will be at my show here in Portland. Coming up! The weekend after Thanksgiving, December 7 and 8.
