You Today




On my first visit to Turkish market in Berlin I saw this crazy zebra fabric and immediately fell in love with it.. But I couldn’t buy everything that I liked at that point.. First I needed to think about what could I make with this fabric.. I successfully controlled myself and decided to make another visit to the Turkish market day before we were supposed to leave Berlin..



Cap sleeve cropped top #127 from Burda 02/2015 was the best choice.. I already used this pattern once before.. This time I made a few changes to the pattern.. The back is made from one piece, not two.. I didn’t want to cut zebras and have a problem with pattern matching.. Because of that, I had to make neck opening wider so I could put it on..



I finally made a black skirt.. I needed one simple, midi length skirt for summer.. Button down gathered skirt with large pockets was the first thing that came to my mind.. The fabric I used for this one is some kind of viscose.. Skirts like this are easy to make without a pattern.. All I needed was 1.20 m of fabric and 10 buttons and cutting of all the rectangles could start..

  1. Very sweet combination. The black skirt is very chic, looks almost like silk, not viscose!

    2. A friend also told me that the fabric looks like sandwashed silk too, but unfortunately, it's not.. You can see the difference when you touch the fabric..
      thanks :)

  2. I love it! I wish I could wear tops like this, but I get too uncomfortable with high necks and wovens...

    The fabric is gorgeous and great adjustments so you can keep it all uncut at the back... looks great!
