Moonflower Skirt

I finished my Moonflower skirt a couple of weeks back, and finally the sun came out and I got the chance to wear it!

It’s made from recycled fabrics – the suede waistband from an old jacket, and the skirt is two different green chiffons, the cloth woven together and embroidered over.  It’s taken such a long time – over 50 hours of work in this piece of slow cloth – but I am so pleased with the result. Recycled fashion? Wearable art? What do you think of my little handmade skirt?

I’m no supermodel, but I’m quite pleased with these photos (the skirt looks good 😉 ), so thanks to my DH for doing me the favour 🙂

And for a close-up …. I love the texture of the woven-in flowers, and I’m hoping that the scalloped edges will fray out gradually to make it more of a fringe.

I’m hoping we get lots more sunshine, because I want to wear this a lot this summer! (And I think it’ll look even better once I get some tan on my legs).
