And to make matters worse, my least favourite of his films is what I've based this skirt on!
So hear it comes, I'm sorry Tarantino fans of the world but I don't like kill bill, I dunno why but it just doesn't appeal to me.
Anyway the reason this project came about was because of the fabric, I had an off cut of a tartan poly cotton from Minerva crafts! In fact it was this one:
So without further ado here's what I made! (Excuse my creepy eyes! Apparently I have a problem with flash!)
It's a tartan skirt , with a contrast waistband. I used my clemence skirt pieces but instead of gathering I did some kind of double folded box pleat ! Descriptive I know! But honestly I have no idea how I achieved it!
As you can see the pleats make the skirt very very full!
I used a zip from my stash, and the contrast band also came from stash fabric!
There's a small issue with fit, it's a little big. I'm currently contemplating correcting it, but if I do will I be uncomfortable if I eat too much cake.?
The lengths pretty good though!
Now for the verdict, i think I like it, I can't decide whether I look like the lady of some stately mansion somewhere or if I look like a student who should be sat on her teachers desk asking if there's ANYTHING at all she can do for a bit of extra credit. (Take that where you will!)
Anyway here's the character I based it on, her name is gogo!
She kills people with a mace. And let's face it if your gonna kill people a mace is definitely the way to go!
