Sumptuous velvet started life as a large scarf. Then I spotted a wool skirt with a lilac tone in and envisaged the wool cummerbund due to the lilac/beige colour harmony. An experimental challenge with ‘V’ shaped cummerbund (lined) and cutting skirt sections to hang from the diagonal. Floral voile lilac/beige insets, and purple/grey butterfly print as hem, chosen for colour harmony.
‘Plum Velvet’ Skirt No. 1 has 4 small triangular inserts, forming a fully circular skirt (great for dancing), and dark butterfly print hem frill.
‘Plum Velvet’ Skirt No. 2 has 2 triangular insets front and back and cream frill.
‘Plum Velvet’ Skirt No. 3 is made of many flared lilac and beige pieces (photo not showing).
‘Plum Velvet’ skirt No. 2 side insertion of invisible zip.
