Making a pompom skirt

Finally I pulled myself together and shot the pompom skirt I’ve been working on for the past weeks. The skirt is constructed after my own measurements. I bought the fabric in Shepherds Bush – it’s a nice drapey wool crepe. The skirt has a shaped, topstitched waistband with a dome button and it’s lined with taffeta. The pompoms are handmade, using a fork and remnant alpaca yarn from a previous project. I wouldn’t recommend using this method with alpaca (it’s so smooth) because the pompoms tend to unravel quite easily. I don’t think it was a bright idea to attach pompons in the back, but I thought it looked nice. A mixer skirt I think, standing conversation only. Haha!

Until next time,
