But first- today’s two winners of the OCC Lip Tar Sample Packs:
Thanks for the link, Emily.
If you two ladies would please email me your addresses and your palette preferences, I’ll drop those in the post to you!
Circle Skirt- 5 Positions of Pavlova
During the Shipping Season as you’re all receiving your Pavlova Wrap Top & Skirt pattern, I’ll be releasing a series of drafting and techniques tutorials tailored to the Pavlova Separates. Circle skirts are a very versatile shape- easy to sew, fun to play with. In keeping with the off-duty ballerina flavor of the pattern, I thought I’d call these the 5 Positions.
For the 5th position, I thought we could go tacky and hilarious or surreal or avante garde with some good old fashioned appliques! I know how to execute them (and write the tutes!) but I thought I’d ask for your input on the applique design before I finalize the tutorial:
How cute is this? I love rainy days, and we could add in some pretty raindrops, too. Or. Some kind of bedazzler? Why not?
Plain diamonds appliqued around the hem might work. And tassels, so mischievous. Without them, it could be a cool graphic way to show off a neato printed fabric.
Sans rickrack, and perhaps only one bunch of flowers… What if they were dimensional? Ooooooh…
These were part of a “general purpose” vintage applique pattern, aren’t they adoooooorable? Pick these, pick these! I want to wear skunks! (And are those little birdies… or…? sequins? )
So let me know what you’d like to see by voting below. I’ll include a pdf template of the applique I use on my final skirt, and she’ll be revealed as the 5th Position of the Pavlova Skirt. Sound good? (I am not, am not, am not making a poodle skirt, though. :))
Vote as many times as you like before the end of this week. Then I’ll get to work on that applique tutorial!
