8-piece Spring Ensemble

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The purse, hat and sandals. All pieces are made to last. All clothing pieces were constructed with French seams. Hat is lined with b/w checked gingham. Purse is trimmed with black leather 'strips' cut from a recycled leather skirt, and it is lined with an inside side 'make-up pocket. The only part of the pattern I used for the sandals was the 'sole' pattern. The rest of the sandal is my own creation, designed to match the ensemble. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have much patience.

What you will need

  • B/W gingham
  • yellow cotton rib knit
  • white batiste
  • daisy buttons
  • ribbon
  • recycled leather strips
  • interfacing
