Tee: Zara, Skirt: Self-made, Boots/Rings: H&M

Sorry for the quietness around here these days guys!This week has been hectic!I have a ton of homework to do and literally no time to even think about sewing!I snapped these photos two weeks ago,when I was in my hometown for my Dad's birthday.
This skirt is inspired by the DIY Couture book.I used a stretch velvet I had in my stash for really long and I omitted the zipper that was suggested in the book.I really love the color and the movement of the skirt!

  2. Cuteeee! Is there elastic in the waistband? You've made me want to make a velvet skirt too.. hehe ;-)

    1. Thank you!There is no elastic in the waistband!The fabric was already stretchy,so I cut a strip of fabric,folded in half and just sew it on the skirt!I believe this isn't the correct way to do it,but it worked!Really glad you felt inspired by it!
