The straps are made using a cording technique where you sew a cord into the fabric and then use it to turn it right side out. Let me know if you're interested in a tutorial! The chevron skirt was made using this tutorial (thanks Miranda!)
This was my first time attempting to match stripes, and while it was sometimes challenging and I definitely didn't nail it 100%, I loved the feeling of getting it right. I definitely want to sew with stripes again very soon!
Overall I love how it looks on my lovely assistant (with one exception), but if I was sewing it again I'd definitely add a lining and make the front of the skirt a bit longer. Because of the bias skirt it really hugs my form, which is not my usual comfort zone. I'll probably end up wearing it around the house and to the pool as a coverup because without a lining it's impossible to wear it without panty-lines showing, and going bare is out of the question with such a short front (for me anyway.)
Thank you for reading! Let me know what you think!
