Scientist-Seamstress' snips a sassy skirt for Sex & City showcase in New York
Sex and the City fans can hardly forget the opening credits where Carrie Bradshaw rocks a sassy tulle skirt – just before she gets splashed with water by a passing bus.
One of White Tree Fabrics cutting-edge blogger/designers Erin Weisbart (nee Currie) recently organised a photoshoot in New York, USA, to showcase a beautiful tulle skirt she made herself.
Using gorgeous material from White Tree Fabrics, a Nottinghamshire-based retail dressmaking fabric company; Erin decided to create her very own tulle circle skirt in a vibrant colour.
Erin, who is a scientist by day and a seamstress by night; then showcased her own hand-made fabulous fuscia creation in Central Park, dubbing it “Silliness in the City” (SaTC for short.)
“I wore it almost every day and absolutely adored it,” said Erin who has a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and owns SeamstressErin Designs pattern company.
“The skirt is the perfect wardrobe staple that carries from daytime wear: with a t-shirt and slip-ons, to a night on the town with a sexy top and heels.”
“White Tree has an overwhelming selection of nets, so I emailed them with a brief about what I wanted to sew and the colour I wanted,” she added.
“They sent me swatches of several suggestions - this made selecting the fabric a breeze."
Erin believes that every woman should feel confident and beautiful in her own skin playing “Dress Up” and prides herself on making patterns in a large range of sizes.
Sew a plain one inch waistband, stabilised with a ribbon inside, and a standard zipper. Then take White Tree Fabrics' tulle and satin and sew as one for the waistband and zipper insertion, but keep separate for the remainder of the side seams to maximise puffiness. Cut the satin under layer shorter than the tulle by several inches so that it is emphasised at the bottom of the six-layered skirt. No need to hem the tulle.
