{My Burda Pattern Silk Skirt - Bow Tie & Scarf Creation}

Thanks for the many well wishes in your comments. In about a week I will feel my old self I guess. The inflammation is going down, now only I deal with the side affects of the medications.
Traveling the world as international consultants always gave me access to several world city shopping malls, like Plaza Indonesia in Jakarta. It was there, where I did buy some nice Gucci silk for sewing a skirt  to go with the leather waist coat that was made for me by Pond's (India) Ltd. leather factory in Chennai (Madras). For both I used a Burda Pattern. The silk skirt is silk lined, using the smooth Japanese Kinkame silk 50 weight thread, which is incomparable. I even did make a silk scarf with hand rolled edges to go with it. For husband Pieter a silk bow tie as well as one for me. Having lived and worked in Indonesia I always had access to the most pretty silk hair bow barrettes with snood. Now, living back in the USA I at least managed to make one myself, to match the skirt. Learn from Mariette as you look at the pictures below... Shopping information for the Kinkame silk thread and silk lining you will find below. Have any of you made a hand rolled silk scarf? Or a silk hair bow? Or maybe a silk bow tie for your significant other? Let me know as I definately want to hear about it!
Scarf, bow tie and hair bow is shown towards the end in more detail.
Voilà, my Burda pattern self sewn silk Gucci skirt...
Photo taken on Pieter's birthday, below you find a link where husband Pieter is wearing his silk bow tie.
Doing a 'tournesol' for showing you the different angels of the skirt.
It overlaps in the front and is inspired by a kind of sarong style.
It is not a wrap sarong though, in the back is a blind zipper...
By the way, do you like this leather waist coat?
That's the back with the blind zipper...
Pond's (India) Ltd. did a great job with the top stitching on this leather waist coat!
We both worked for Pond's and they did this for me as a courtesy. 
I'll treasure this as long as it fits and that's not a big risk as I'm the same size since I was 15.
With this overlapping double layer you have lots of freedom to move, or even RUN...
The part that I lift up here is NOT lined, the rest of the skirt is fully lined.
The waist coat has snap closure and also 2 welted pockets with a zipper. 
A notch collar and top stitching all over.
I've turned the blouse's notch collar over the leather one...
Now let's go to the matching accessories...
My favorite Japanese silk thread! Below you find the link for it...
Also shown here is the solid black silk lining of the skirt.
At the top: hand rolled silk scarf for which the smooth Japanese silk thread works great!
Below the scarf are the two matching bow ties with their hook and eye slide (see link below).
Silk hair bow with snood that I love to wear at times. 
Detail of the hand rolled silk scarf. Below you find a video of how to do this.
Easily done with this perfect Japanese Kinkame silk thread.
My silk hair bow barrette with snood...
Here you also clearly see the black dots that are woven into the silk.
Just love this quality fabric and love to run my fingers through, while at the store...
If you got the bow tie hook and eye slide, these are relatively easy to make!
Now I like to hear from you what you've made for yourself or a loved one.

  1. Dear Mariette,

    You look fabulous and I love the silk skirt and leather waistcoat.
    The black and gold silk is lovely and thanks for sharing the link for the Japanese silk thread, as I have never seen this before.
    I made a bow tie for husband and I have made quite a few for my Bears.

    Hope that you are feeling better and have a great week
    Hugs
    Carolyn

  12. Very lovely fabric and you did a wonderful job sewing everything.

    I am a self taught sewer and can do most basic things for the home...napkins, table runners, tote bags, pillowcases etc but I have yet to try and sew something for myself. I'm afraid it looks quite complicated to me! HA

  14. Fesch, fesch, mal wieder, liebe Mariette!
    Bist ein hübsches Mädel! Ich könnte das nicht, da müßte ich erst ne Zauberpille einwerfen oder so *lach* Liegt halt nicht jeder.
    Und Deine Nähkünste bewundere ich ja! Das hab' ich schon bei meiner Schwester immer bewundert. Ich hatte noch nie große Lust dazu, schon in der Schule nicht ;-) Hab' lieber mit den Jungen draußen Fußball gespielt und diverse Schuhe zerschossen, sehr zum damaligen Leidwesen meiner Mutti. :-)

    Ich wünsch' Dir eine gute Nacht - ach, ich bedachte eben die unterschiedliche Zeit nicht ...
    und sende Dir viele liebe Grüße aus der "Versenkung" :-)

  22. Dearest Mariette,
    It is really wonderful to know you are feeling better, my friend!!!

    Gucci silk is fabulous matching with your leather waistcoat coat♡♡♡ You showed us another great talent for us. Wonderful accessories as well.

    Oh, I have never heard of the name of the company of thread "kinkame". Yes, it sure has the design of the turtle "which we call kame in Japanese". How wonderful♪♪♪
    I admire the way you do everything perfectly.

    Love you always from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

    PS> So sorry for my belated comment. Bit busy for these couple of days.

    Thank you for all your visits to my blog during our road trip! We made it to Florida on Wednesday...finally!!! Boy, did it feel good to get out of the car!

  25. Dearest Mariette, You shine girl! Your inner beauty shines brightly on the outside. You look ever so radiant, and a picture of health. I can't stop smiling. Oh, and how clever you are to make your own clothes. Something I have not learned is to sew. I do little bits of mending, but that's the limit of my sewing skills. Sending love and smiles your way. God bless. Love and care, Kerrie
