last year I sewed this mini dress.
I like this dress very much.
I dont know how I got the idea to combine this dress and a kilt. LOL
Maybe I’ve seen a kilt or a pleated skirt on the internet. I dont remember hehe
I searched the net for tutorials and pics of how to make a kilt.
The fantastic woolen and the leather straps I found at Ebay UK. For the Kilt only I needed nearly 3 yards 😮
At first I shorten my pattern.
I sewed it the same way like my “old” mini dress. Then I sewed the kilt and put both together.
to make my Kilt more realistic I added leather straps. They are just decoration because the fabric “under” this front is 10 inches longer. So no reason to “fear” storm and wind when wearing it without trousers hehe
For sewing special projects like bags or this dress I ordered a brass stamp with my logo to put on leather.
Yes, it has been expensive but I love it
I still have to find a way to sew these small leather pieces. It isnt perfect with hand sewing 😦 and it hurts because the leather stripes has been thick
I made another Kilt minidress with this blue/green colors. But I still have to put the straps and the logo on it
What do you think about my design? I so love it and will wear it very often hihi
