Sarong

Amandine left a sarong with me, for me to sew a wrap skirt, ideally a circle wrap skirt. Since the sarong had a rectangular print, it was not to be. But still, I wanted to make her wrap skirt, preferably with some zest.
I reviewed all my patterns, and I found one by Parfum du Ciel. If you browse (click Feuilleter) the book on Amazon, this is the skirt of page 6. Here is my version:

There were some fabric left, either too much, or not enough. Too much to just put it away, not enough for a sophisticated top. More thinking, and then, I remembered this

I don't know who made it, my grand-mother, my mother, my sister??? While the embroidery is beautiful, the construction is quite simple. And here it is:

Now I only have tiny bits left...

Amandine, you father came to fetch your things a bit too early to take the skirt and the top with him, but I'll mail them to you asap.
