mohair and silk
I wanted that very red.
And I wanted both very simple.
The skirt in sky blue is made of silk twill. Shimmering. Long. Flow-y.
The red pullover is made of mohair knit. Red(i said it twice). Soft. Short. Hairy.
They're too simple to describe, sewing-wise, as you can see everything at a glance. The only truth that you don't get from the pictures is that I laundered the skirt twice before hemming it. I wished to give the silk skirt a casual look before finishing it by washing it like a cotton denim skirt. A sewing extravaganza, eh? ... oh... I see your grin, trying to let me know that you had recognized my extravaganza by those creases before I said anything. Then I really have nothing to report today. Oh well.
