Have we stepped into the Jurassic era? Maybe I have with this fun skirt and handbag in a rather ‘prehistoric’ dinosaur print.
This is the Natural History line by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics.
Certainly not a new collection by any means, so I’ve found the best place to get out-of-print fabric is definitely Etsy.
Wore this outfit the other day to work for no apparent reason, and asked James to take some photos. (Trust me, he was thrilled!)
Skirt is one of my earlier clothing makes. No pattern, just self drafted this pleated, midi length skirt. The waistband is seriously a minimum of four inches wide, which was kind of an odd decision for sure. It’s also a bit long, but whatever…
In hindsight, I would have made the skirt about 4-5 inches shorter and made the waistband about 2 inches.
There is an invisible zipper at the side.
The dinosaur purse totally rocks my world.
It’s the Nora Doctor Bag by Swoon Patterns. Not the easiest sewing project, but it is a very interesting and clever design.
I’m a huge fangurl of Swoon Patterns – the finished bags always look so GOOD!
