One of my old stand-by skirts has been developing some irritating holes. I should, probably, just get rid of it, but I don't know when I'll find another that will suit so well. I decided, therefore, to patch it. And not simply to patch it, but to patch it with crimson silk. The effect is a little irregular, but striking, I think. Please excuse the piss poor photography.
Silk is frustrating to work with, and I had to use about twice the pins I normally would, but I'm actually looking forward to showing off my rather gaily bohemian skirt.
