Tulip skirt with a bow

This tulip skirt dates back to 2010 but I still love it even though I hardly wear it now. It was one of those pieces that you fall in love with, quickly make it and then wear it all the time for several seasons in a row.
I love all the details: the classic tulip shape, soft colour, my favourite detail - a bow, and occasionally want to make another new copy of it.

Pattern from BurdaStyle 4/2010
Light but firm cotton. Zipper in the left side seam. The belt is attached to the back of the skirt and wraps around the waist to be tied into a bow.

Summer souvenir

This is one of my earliest and most favorite works. I painted it after a photo of me taken by my husband in Saint Tropez during the summer vacation in 2009. Admiring the sun-lit scenery of the bay and the roofs of Old town I asked Andrew to make this shot. I knew I would paint it one day.

Oil on canvas, 73x60,  June 2010.

Это одна из моих ранних и самых любимых работ. Прогуливаясь по Сан-Тропе во время нашего отпуска на Ривьере, я попросила мужа запечатлеть момент. Я точно знала, что когда-нибудь попробую передать это впечатление маслом.
