So, way back when it was the holidays, I made a skirt. No, not the holidays that flew me over the seas and back again only to dump me back here with a multitude of exams. No, not them. And no, not the holidays before, those Easter ones in which I ripped up a load of old magazines... (you have to scroll down to find it :P)
Nope, it was the one before.
How's that for spontaneous blogging - step one - make. step two - let it fester for a few months. step 3 - take pictures. step 4 - let them fester for a few months. step 5 - finally get around to blogging
It's the same with my designs. Little did you know until now since I'm telling you... those summer ocean ones? They were drawn a month ago... I have 3 more weeks waiting for uploading...
And I've started skipping weeks. I pretend I have an excuse; It's exam week, I'm having a week off to finish my sewing (FAIL), I haven't finished last weeks. But really, I'm just being lazy. Though I do get things done in that time! Really, I've started doing my Spanish Homework again :D
So, the skirt. It's a rather random little skirt.
So my mummy cut off the top and hemmed it and made them all pretty looking with proper wood loops.
And thus we had these strips of fabric with funny loops on them, about 1ft wide and a metre long.
Too short for a skirt (by my standards at least) but none the less I spent a day pleating pinning and tacking. Then asking my mummy if I could use the fabric (a bit late :S)
Too short skirt wise, methinks. So the next day I started sewing it properly, adding a zip and elastic waistband. And a hook and eye.
And then by turning the fabric upside down, so the loops were at the top, I added an underskirt.
See the loops. The underskirt is unpleated, and the loops are sewn onto the waisband. The front is pinned up, but in the final thing it's only sewn a few inches, mostly left open. (and it's damn hard to sit in, the popper likes to undo... I think I'll just remove it, it doesn't do anything XD )
And thus, FINI ^^
I'm so imaginative with my dressing XD
But I'm proud, I did the bulk of this in 3 days, no pattern. I think it used 3 of the strips of fabric, and I have plenty of those loops leftover. (Planning a belt)
Backtracking a little... speaking of those exams, I mean a multitude. As in, THREE today! And 4 tomorrow D: Remember that time when I said my revision techniques were kinda... lacking? I haven't even done that. Revision in the 20 minutes before the exam, works a treat :D I promise I won't do this with my real exams, Promise (cross my heart).
So, thanks for looking. You see, I'm rubbish with posting my outfits; I have to tell you the whole lengthy story about it in between, but feel free just to look at the outfits and go :D
Oooh ooh ooh and looky - £10 Tesco wedges :B I promised I'd never go there, but surely one pair can't hurt?! A little on the pricy side for me, buy they're deadly comfy, and I can walk in them :D
