Four Metre Velvet Skirt

Four Metre Velvet Skirt
A full-length, circular skirt out of the whole of four metre panne velvet, according to this heavy but cuddly. The skirt has overlength, so that it can be worn over a crinoline in spite of its heaviness, but can also be shortened easily on the upper side, so that it is not too long wearing it without hoops.

Four Metre Velvet Skirt

Making of …

The easy pattern consists out of six pieces each with an extra ruffle-fragment and is completly self-made.

The skirt is exclusively sewn by hand.

Completed: 1997

… in Action

With its four metres of velvet the skirt is accordingly heavy and therefore barely crinoline-qualified, but it actually was worn often with a crinoline ;-)

The skirt can be combined in many ways with different tops, blouses and corsets and in some extent as an underskirt.

Sadly there are no (good) pictures…
