Homemade souvenir

M loved to buy souvenirs in the shops down the Sacre Coeur. But none of all possible 'I love Paris' t-shirts she liked. Some later we bumped into a great fabric shop where a friendly woman sold us quite some silk fabrics. This one was combined with a sample of a red transparent curtain. The skirt layers were wrinkled and attached to a shorter, silk waistband.

I'm glad how the length turned out.





As I don't have an overlock machine, the skirt was finished in a different way: I first rolled the silk edge through my fingers and finished it with a fine zigzag stitch. The red underskirt was already finished.
Tadaa! My first Paris buy result, today on M's hips to school.

Buitengewoon mooi!
Ik vermoed dat je de stofjes op de Marché Saint-Pierre vond. Weet je nog in welke winkel precies? Ik moet er morgen heen...

@ Pascale: the silk fabric with the Eiffel towers is from Tissus Reine, but I bought a lot of cheap plain silk fabrics in Au bonheur des dames, 1/3 R Livingstone, opposite of Dreyfus (which I didn't like), on the backside of Hall St Pierre.
