The leather that my friend Thelma donated from her stash to mine has been like a siren’s call. About once a week I get it out and try and think about what I can make that will do it justice. I have been thinking collars, pockets, trims, etc. but yesterday I wore this skirt and it proved to be my inspiration:
How simple is this? Two strips of slightly shaped leather on a stretchy band. I spent the drive home thinking about how I could jigsaw together a few pieces of leather, sew them onto some stretchy stuff from my stash and fashion a skirt – sounds easy!
this took skill 😉
Then, joy of joys, my friend Suzanne called in – she didn’t escape for a few hours, this became a two woman job!
Anyway, with great trepidation I started cutting and we pieced the skirt together. I cunningly took photographs whilst Suzanne did all the work…
Stitched it all together, rummaged through the stash for a stretchy band and voila! a new leather skirt.
How well does it go with my green suede boots?
