Mortem's Tricks or Treats: Romantic Hobble Skirt-- Finito!

Well-- I finally garnered the motivation to just finish the skirt once and for all.
I probably should've stopped once I finished basting the pieces, but my urge to sew overtook me and I finished the darn thing, eheheh... it didn't take long in my frenzy-- but afterwards I felt remorse for having finished it.

As I have said in previous posts; my supplies are rather limited and projects aren't as abundant as they used to be for me. So I have to conserve, conserve, conserve!

Alas... you can't keep a crafter from crafting.

So, to recount what was used:

High quality stretch velvet in black
Venetian lace trim in black
Ruffle lace trim in black
Black satin ribbon
Pattern and design by yours truly.

I didn't end up using button or a zipper, as the velvet was stretchy enough so that I didn't need to use them at all.

I need to make a minor adjustment to the fit of the waist as it's too stretchy, but other than that it is peachy.

  1. You're very talented! The skirt and the necklace are both divine.

  2. Wow, what a lovely skirt and necklance! I approve!

  3. I was going to squee all over the skirt when I suddenly saw that necklace... it is *amazing*! Seriously, I'd love to have one like yours. You really are a creative girl :)!

    1. Thanks =3

      I am willing to sell it, if you really are serious-- I can always make another one when my mother sends me my wireworking tools, hehe.
      Feel free to email me for any more details and questions:

    2. Actually I am! You're probably going to hear from me soon :D

  4. That turned out lovely! I am also in love with that necklace!!!

    1. Thank you very kindly =)
      The offer to sell it includes everyone-- but it is a first come first serve as I don't have all my tools with me to produce more than the one I have. That'll definitely change in the near future, though, if you don't catch this one.

  5. There's an award for you on my blog! :)

  6. The skirt turned out beautifully! Definitely loving the necklace as well!
