A sneak look at some skirts I have been making the past week. From old jeans, vintage ticking and old army shirts I made up my first batch of patchwork skirts.

Although skirts-from-pants is an old look I created a more tulip shape to them. The technique created a fullness without being 'flouncy'. This, and various horizontal pleats created a distortion in the silhouette which tends to give the skirts a sense of movement.

The designing is done 'on the fly' with no patterns which makes creating them fun and easy.  

 Oh yes, urbandon is on facebook now. I keep forgetting! I tend to updating there more frequently- come join me!

Best wishes to all.
