Party Favourites

I love African wax print fabrics and I just LOVE how awesome the fabrics look when made into “Party” clothes.

These vibrant colours and fun designs are perfect for festivals, a day at the beach or a stroll around the grocery store 🙂

These items are handmade by me – Nomes, and each design is unique.

Geometric Reversible Skirt with Spots

I made this little skirt on Saturday, using some African wax print cotton and some spotty fabric – it is the same pattern as the skirt in my reversible skirt tutorial

I initially got the idea for this skirt from  http://verypurpleperson.com/2009/12/easy-full-skirt-and-little-tutorial.html. I have made a few adjustment to suit my choice of fabric.

It was pretty easy to create – just 90 minutes of time and using only 2 lengths of fabric, elastic and my trusty Singer sewing machine.

I have other items for sale in my Etsy online shop -Made by Nomes – http://www.etsy.com/shop/MadeByNomes

And here is another one of my favourite skirts. I found a pattern on-line which I adjusted so it would suit my needs.

Features include a wide fitted waistband, 4 front pleats and a side zipper. I also added a polyester lining so I can wear it in the winter with tights. I love this tartan print! This one’s not for sale in my Etsy shop but do let me know if you want a custom made skirt 🙂
