Hand painted black and gold skirt, Midi cotton A line skirt with applique

45 USD

The “City at Dusk” skirt is an A-line midi skirt onto which I attached a hand painted silhouette of an imaginary old city at sunset, when the light can have so many shades and colors. I painted it with shades of gold, beige and gray. 
It's made of of a medium weight, cotton- polyester fabric. For the waist I used elastic. It is not lined, but the fabric is not transparent.

The city silhouette is hand painted by me on a piece of white cotton fabric which I attached to the skirt using Heat'n'Bond, then I stitched the contours for durability. The hem is made using black linen bias binding in order to hide the painted piece's border. 

For the painting I used special permanent water based textile paints (I only use Maimeri paints). After the cloth is painted it is left to dry for 24 hours and then the paint is fixed onto the cloth by ironing it for 5 minutes at high temperature.

It's perfect for office, everyday wear or as a birthday gift, Mother's Day gift, anniversary gift.
