handmade skirt

P1450062

As promised yesterday , here are a few pictures of my new (and already very favorite ) pink skirt. I had this lovely vintage pink fabric for a little while , wondering what would be the perfect project for it.
One morning, I woke up and it was like an evidence : I will make a gathered skirt out of it. With a highwaisted elastic band. The fashion fairy probably whispered this wonderful idea, to my ears, while I was quietly sleeping …

To complete this project I have only used vintage materials. Well, to be totally fair, I needed my faithful TOYOTA sewing machine.
I need to share a little secret with you , the fabric, with a dainty floral pattern , comes from ….old bed sheets !! I love repurposing bed sheets and they often have the most lovely design onto them.

OUTFIT :: for this “séance photos” , I paired my new skirt with a simple white tank top adorned with one of my corsage brooches, a big black cameo necklace I made last week, vintage (and so comfortable) black leather wedge shoes .And as a final note : A hand-embellished vintage black bag. I will soon release my new upcycled bag collection, and this one is part of it .

Bonjour Sabine,
Marvelous skirt! And so versatile. I love that a bed sheet, but you are right, many have pretty designs.
You are a lovely model.
Bon week-end,
Mimi
