Completed: Trashy Lampshade Pencil Skirt

Let the filters on my photos take you back to a time when fringing was all the rage!

Years ago I bought a bag of ribbon and trimming scraps from a fabric department store. In it was a 1.2m length of 20cm fringing. Score! I thought. I’ll have to do something with that.

Recently I was in a slap-dash let’s make something mode and decided I had to have a Trashy Lampshade Skirt.

Don’t over-analyse it, as I’m not sure what is going on here:

In a way it’s my first attempt at lining a skirt, as I wanted the fringing to be independent to the outer-velvet layer. So I made two skirts, one velvet and one black satin, made the black satin one 1 inch shorter than the velvet, attached them at the waistband and sewed the fringing on the inner black satin skirt’s hem.

Not bad. Now if I ever need a Halloween costume I just need to wire in some lighting up there.
