Self drafted Octopus Skirt


This is a self drafted skirt based on instructions for self drafting from Tilly and the Buttons book 'Love at First Stitch'. I'm obsessed with this Octopus fabric by Cotton & Steel which comes in beige and navy. I can only seem to get hold of the beige one in the UK (they are a US collective of designers and the navy does't seem to make it this far and is snapped up when it does). When it arrived I realised it was going to really wash out my face so made it into a skirt instead. I think this skirt is going to be a good summer staple but I need to not eat a big dinner before wearing it (like I did for this photo!) as it sits right on my tummy. It also needs the hem taking up as it's a bit long but over all I'm pleased with he result.
