It's no secret that I seem to be somewhat obsessed with circle skirts. I just keep churning them out. This one is a 3/4 circle skirt and after I finish this post I will be working of a 1/2 circle skirt. There is something that I really love about the volume and shape that a circle skirt can produce. With this black skirt I made use of a tucking technique from the book 'The art of manipulating fabric' by Colette Wolf. I am totally loving this book, as it is a good reference book and full of inspiration. I often flick through it and decide to make a garment around a certain technique. I made use of cross-stitched tucks in my black skirt, then sewed sections together at regular intervals to create little bows. The weight of the details at the hem gives the skirt more of a flared structure. I am quite happy with how it turned out. The necklace is from pigeon hole. My mum and Kaye bought it for a Chrissy present and I just love wearing it with black.
We took these photos in one of the northern Prenzlauerberg parks. I still think that Volkspark Freidrichshain is the best park in Berlin. We spent most of this weekend lazing in the sun with a mini grill and a bottle of wine. Oh so relaxing, but now it's time to sew, then off to work. boo hoo (about work that is).
