Tinkerbell Meets Obama: The Meringue Skirt

This was my first Sew Weekly Challenge of the year! Here it is my Meringue skirt! It was based on an accessory my Grandmother’s long string of pearls and a 1950s gold flower brooch. They weren’t my only inspiration for this outfit! I was totally trying to channel Michelle Obama’s outfit.


Not bad but there is definitely an element of Tinkerbell in a minty green with a scalloped hem!
 I learnt some good new techniques even though the catch stitching did my head in!
I even managed to sew in these fab little labels Piemaker bought me for Christmas!
The fabric was a narrow width from Barcelona. Overall I'm pleased with the skirt and I think it would fit nicely into the graduate wardrobe.
