Dresses in my wardrobe everywhere and not a separate to see.
I love dresses, I really do. But sometimes I want more. I demand MOARR. More chocolate (another family block please), more rings (every finger deserves a lil something something), MORE pretty clothes to stroke and coo at and call pet names. Ahem.
This skirt was made on a particularly boring Friday night. I had actually done all my assignments, New Zealand’s Next Top Model had finished and it was raining outside, leaving me trapped inside lest my frizzy hair be touched with rain.
It’s a self-drafted half-circle skirt and my favourite type of waistband- one where it dips in at the middle. I have convinced myself it gives the illusion of me being smaller than I am. I’m not sure if it works or not but I am happy with the delusion. I had been itching to add a placket with buttons and trims for yonks and yonks and with such a simple skirt it seemed like the perfect time.
This skirt was super quick to make, the buttons, trim and zip were from my stash and the black cotton was leftover from a dress I made (and are still yet to take photos off oops). So this project was free. Yippee.
I accidently made this a smidge too small and short (the perils of stash busting with limited fabric) but I have decided with tights I can kinda get away with it. Kinda <.<. I should probably avoid windy drafts or bending over ever though. Unless that’s the way I roll ; ). Excuse the awkward poses. I was sucking my tummy in and it did something to my face. I’m a model daaaarrrling.
This top was my Nan’s when she was younger and I utterly adore it. Embroidered crop top? Oh my!
