A matching skirt and handbag.A bit tacky I know. But well funny :-) And great for summer statment making days!

I bought the fabric at IKEA for about 2 pounds per meter. The first time I wore skirt I met another girl in the same skirt, same pattern and all in the elevator of my friends house. She had bought hers at Topshop.

I think we must have looked very funny walking out of the elevator.

No I didn't use a pattern. for the bag I sort of made a pattern myself. To make sure all pieces would fit. I made one larger rectangle for the outsides, and then one smaller for the sides of the bag, and then one longer (making sore it was the same width as the sides) for the bottom and just cut out the pieces.

For the skirt I tok to straight pieces of fabric. trying to line them up so that the colours line would not match but be ever "second" red hit white kind of thing. Then I added darts in the back and front. I have a rather square body type, not much difference of my hips and waist so I just had to make small darts. I think if you have a smaller waist you would have to cut the fabric curvier.

The whole thing was starting out to be a dress according to a wrap dress pattern I bought. BUt I really screwed that up, and ended up making a skirt and a bag instead. I realised 1. I'm not htat good at sewing that I can make a dress yet, (tops are sooooo hard), and 2. Wrap dresses does not look good on women without a marked out waist...it looks sooo good on women with hour glass bodys, but on the refrigirator with legs bodys, not such a good look . Cheesy
