Such a long history of pleated dresses and the pleated skirt was born around 1920s as I know. There are so many kinds of pleated which allow us to make whatever you love and suitable for your body type. Well, as maxi skirt is on the way back for this spring so I need to keep myself trendy, little bit LOL.
I surfed on the internet last day, I saw an YSL skirt !!!! Wooooo that was so perfect. I was so in love with it but the price didn’t sound good for my wallet, so as usual I walked to my favorite fabric shop on the Victor Hugo street in Lyon to hunt for my babe. Yeah !!! As I expected a perfect Viscose caught all my intention. GOSH I gotta have it !! then yeah I got it for 15 Euros. 100 times less expensive than YSL skirt, so I am happy…
Today I made one of the pleated skirt. I used knife pleated for my skirt. The result is more than satisfied… Hihihi . I paired with vintage Armani Exchange belt..
Here we go, hope you enjoy the post and share me your maxi skirts pictures in the comment below. I would love to see them…
Jacket is one of my favorite items, whenever I have chance I grab one for me. As usual I love going to the market, there’s a stand of fabric which has so many choices with reasonable price that everyone can effort.
I got 2m of mixed wool other week; I didn’t even know what to do with it. And finally here it comes again!!!! A JACKET !!!!! It looks stunning, simple yet modern. I love it… It has 2 pockets to keep my hands warm 😉
here is some of the the pictures which I am so proud to share.
I wore it in two styles, this one with a big elastic bell with white metal detail from Mogan. It looked quite cool and elegant.
The second one is so free, just like another xxl Jacket…
The last picture will be credited to my sister who made this beautiful black dress for me. She own a Tailor shop in Cambodia.
Do whatever you love and love whatever you do. keep smiling… Please, enjoy your Sunday. :-*
It seems the XXL jacket, coat are back in track this year, as wearing boyfriend’s jacket is always my dream * XXL fashion for me is boyfriend stuffs 😉 *so I made me one this year. I always thought wearing long jacket looks ridiculous on a short girl like me, but finally I found it looks better than I’ve thought. So short ladies!!!! give it a try !!!! 😉
I found this fake fur was on sale in Mondial Tissue, since I was so lazy to make my own pattern I grabbed one from Burda. It was so easy to make! I encourage every women to try sewing.
I forgot the price of the fabric, I think I spent about 25 Euros for the total of my jacket and the pattern included.
Well, the proudest thing is I wear my own clothing and it’s unique 😉
Talking about full circle skirt, it’s a kind of endless fashion. It comes over and over again and I am still loving those kind of skirts. Not only feminine but also simple, chic, glamour. It depends on how you were it; when and what fabric… It’s absolutely a stunning stuff which every women should have in their closets.
One Saturday I stopped by a small fabric shop, I found a floral linen fabric. I was immediately thought of full circle skirt ! GOSH, I gotta have it, so I bought it for 15€ for about 3m5. It’s even cheaper than a good full circle skirt in the shops.
I have to say that I gave up on sewing about 4 or 5 years ago, this time would be a good challenge for me and myself 😉 … I quite am satisfied with the result.
