Currently I am in the land of can'ts...
- I can't get Karlie Kloss out of my mind as she glides down the runway wrapped in Lanvin goodness
- I also can't seem to find any reasonably priced alternative to said look.
Its not that I haven't seen a maxi skirt that I liked but I haven't been able to find one in a bright color or one with the kind of movement that Karlie Kloss's had. So what does that mean everyone................DIY
I made this skirt the same weekend I made my clutch. I've been looking for the right material that would also have movement and when i saw this color I just wanted it on me. Luckily I bought a lot of the fabric since my first go at the skirt wasn't perfect and to hide some of the imperfections I made the belt. Round two is coming up this weekend and I will definitely be keeping a few things in mind
-Invisible thread is your friend since white thread on a magenta skirt just doesn't work out. I have no clue why I didn't just buy the damn magenta thread when my mom suggested it but before I sat down in front of the sewing machine I thought it would be a breeze and my imaginary sewing skills would create such a clean finished product you would notice what color thread I used. HA...that was a mistake.
-Slow and steady will always, absolutely, every time, win the race.
-Keep my cat Salem away from the fabric since he was under the impression that the piece hanging over the table was actually a toy and it was perfectly okay to attack it.
Oh and by the way if you like the necklace its up for grabs on my Etsy store!!!
