Have you seen and sewn a pattern by Misusu? If you haven't you should meet Misusu. They have very original and unique sewing patterns. I have sewed Louise Sweaters before and a couple of other patterns are in my pattern stash and now it is time to meet the newest addition, the Doris skirt!
Today I am part of the social tour for the Doris skirt and I am showing you the two doris skirts that I sewed during testing. The first version I sewed is the cactus skirt. The doris skirt has geometrical lines which is perfect for colour blocking and using piping. For the first version I used one type of fabric for the main pattern pieces and added piping in between to accentuate the lines of the skirt.
There are two different versions you can sew. For the cactus skirt I sewed the version with one piece for the back of the skirt. If you want to colour block even more (like I do) there is also the option to sew the skirt in two pieces, like I did with the second skirt (with the triangular fabric). There is also the option to add a band to the bottom of the skirt if you want to get a more sporty look, I didn't try that option, but that makes the skirt even more versatile.So if you are still in doubt that the doris skirt is something for your girl, have a look at the skirts that were made during testing. At the bottom of this post you can see an overview of the social tour schedule with all the different skirts. They all look so different and unique. The skirt is on sale for 6 euro until Monday April 16th. And.... keep an eye out for a big surprise on Sunday!
You see our girl is dancing away in her skirt. She loves the skirts, which is quite a challenge for a non-twirling piece of clothing. I found it difficult to make photos of the skirts that show off the lines from the different angles. During her dancing you can actually see the whole skirt.Fabric: The red fabric from the first skirt is cosy sweat, the triangle fabric is Gorgeous graphic sweat from Poppy bought at the Stoffenstraat, the cactus fabric is a scrap from our last sewing weekend.
