'Red Ethnic Skirt' is a colourful, decorative skirt and is original and unique. It is fitted around the waist and hips with a flowing asymmetric pleated hemline. It has been created with many layers of fabric pieces and decorative trimmings from Istanbul.
The colours are Autumnal: browns, red, green, gold, cream and grey. A number of different fabrics and trimmings have been used: silk, satin, lace, velvet, tapestry and cotton.
The whole skirt is intricately and decoratively stitched together and has been created from flatteringly shaped fragments of fabric and lace. There is a side zip fastening.
My garments are completely unique and take many hours to create. They are wearable works of art. I visit Turkey every year and love rummaging around the back street haberdashery stores. In 2013, I visited Istanbul and found some beautiful fabrics and trimmings at the Grand Bazaar. The main red and gold sequin panel, the red flock panel and the red and gold trim were all purchased here.
Although many of the fabrics have been edged, some fraying will occur over time adding to the dramatic nature and flowing effect of the garment.
Due to the wide range of fabrics in this garment, it will require delicate hand washing or dry cleaning.

I wanted to make a patchwork skirt using some of the fabrics I purchased in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey. This is the result!
