Now 6 hours later I am still working on a high built entirely from a massive, amazing, overwhelming, overload of suger combined with love and lovelyness – made into dividable forms of heaven…
I could go on and on throwing positive adjectives around…explanation – I went to my first Pastry/Cake/Sunday gathering. Where Anarkistens (ægte) Kogebog shared and tested new recipies for cakes.
And my poor marathon training body and mind are definitely nowhere near in good enough training for this asortment of sweetness. But I dove in, I did my best – and I left nothing. That would be bad form – and would result in mockery – or so I was told. Even though I am being punished now – I am still taking it in good spirit…and sharing my well deserved and nurtured stomach ache and sugar high.
Though boasting from another kind of sweet my last and final skirt in the “triad skirt series” really is sweet with a hint of marangue (oh my, after this afternoon beware of cake-analogies) – sort of light and puffy luckily not in white.
The final skirt is of course the cream coloured cotton fabric with laden with little brown flowers. To add something different to this skirt I desided to split up an under-skirt I started making a few years ago – making two underskirts. It is made of a dark brown gauzy weaved cotton – very light and fluffy. One I added to the final skirt in making – and voila thus giving marangue…
Setting this skirt apart from the other two is also the higher waistband – which I this time made in a very-easy-to-split-open-kind-of-way…I have see the light of my not too dependable weight. And making new clothes – all the work and looking forward to wearing it – makes it real hard when you 2-3 weeks later find that the skirt no longer fits properly – too big…so this time I am planing ahead.
The pattern for this skirt i also a little different slightly more circular where the others are more a-line. But not a comeplete circle as I still wanted to keep these skirts simple. But stil gives it a little bit of the 50s look I love so much – and feel so at home in.
The inner skirt is pleasted all the way round where the outer skirt only has to single pleats one on each side of the back zipper. Contrary to the brown Hawaiian flower skirt I went for a less noticable zipper – more hidden.
Only one last thought for this skirt – as I am still considering wether it is slightly too long. Should or should I now raise the hem an inch or two?
All in all – light and fluffy – love the way it moves and flows with the air when runing down the stairs – makes me feel girly…
