|People at home should walk down the stairs sensibly|
|Like my life: my sketches lack the professional finish I want|
I wanted a nice full skirt with big pouchy pockets on the front, big enough for a kangaroos baby or half a dozen teddy bears or, at the very least, my keys. I sketched it out that night on hotel stationary. A black half circle skirt, possibly in something satiny for the contrast with big rounded pockets finished at the top with black bias binding.
|Back view, and no I didn't get to go in that door.|
The bias binding was the first thing to go. Mainly because I forgot to buy it when we where out buying fabric. I made some binding out of the remnants of the pocket fabric instead. The pocket shape was achieved by drawing round a plate and cutting the top off. I cut four pieces of the fabric, constructing the pockets by sewing two together, right side facing, missing out the top edge. After I turned them right side out I attached the binding and later topstitched them to the skirt.
