I found this piece of material at my parents house a few months ago and was excited to make something out of it. I am really into this color right now, especially in combo with a red/orange accent. To achieve that accent I used a rust orange thread. I also braided together some yarn to create a belt to add a bit more color.
Sunday was a beautiful fall day on Martha’s Vineyard so my fiance and I went for a walk/photo shoot to capture my new skirt. I realize I enjoy making the garment so much more than being the model.
One evening I was with Derek in his shop… while he was working on something I decided to make something. I looked around in his box of mechanical parts and found these stainless steel hose clamps and some orange transformer wrapping wire. This is what I came up with.
