A la turque


This is my latest project,  it’s to be a dance outfit. For a long time I’ve had the idea of some Turkish 19th century inspired thing. A skirt and blouse with another skirt showing underneath. I’m thinking i’ll cut the fabric on the bias and leave one side open. As usual, I’m not at all sure what it’s going to be, I’ll work it out as I go. I found the tassels a while ago, thinking they would go with the outfit, but with this fabric, I’m not sure
