Akira scrap fabric - Butterick 3597

This fabric was bought at an Akira sale. Twice a year, I get a postcard advising me of the next Akira sale. The workroom is located at Central Station so it's easy to get to.
At a sale, I picked up a $10 bag of scrap fabric and then I couldn't understand why I did it.
Anyway, I roughly pieced the scraps together and used Butterick 3597 A-line skirt to pull together this skirt. I teamed it with a cross over knit top and was happy to wear this at a christening.
The challenge was to make something wearable as the red fabric pieces and rope give this skirt an extra dimension and I have a pre-JLo rear. There's no waistband and I've used sunsilky to keep the scratchy fabric off my skin.

Hi Maria,

The skirt looks really good and well done on a great outfit for the christening.

Thanks for reminding me I have some Akira scraps that I need to dig out and see what I can do, maybe we can have a look at it in September :)
