I designed a stripy folk fabric and Susanna, the owner of Kultavilla the weaving mill wove it. Now I have the folk skirt of my dreams!
I bought an Edwardian bodice and replicated it for my daughter. With a simple skirt and some accessories she now has a full outfit.
I made a practical 1915 skirt out of black wool. The pattern was an authentic historical pattern from the book "Kukin oma ompelijansa".
I made a Victorian side-button cycling skirt out of linen so that I can ride my bike in style. The skirt pattern is a free pattern by Bikes & Bloomers.
I made a walking skirt using a free 1902 pattern from Finnish Käsitöitä magazine. Ompelin pitkän hameen vuoden 1902 Käsitöitä-lehden kaavalla.
I made a turn-of-the-century underwear set consisting of a pretty 1912 corset cover and a Victorian underskirt by the Black Snail Patterns.
I received free Kultavilla Folk wool-cotton fabric to test and decided to make a bias-cut autumn skirt with the Lorna skirt pattern by Love Sewing magazine.
I made a ruffled skirt with Ottobre design 1/2011 15. Cocos. I used the same Fabriking bamboo French terry that I used to make a jacket for my son.
This Kultavilla fabric is weaved just a few kilometres from where I live. How nice it would be to wear a skirt out of local fabric!
The 1 metre of bubble print jersey was enough to make both a sleeveless top using the Ottobre 4/2011 34. Glow-worm top pattern and a matching skirt.
