The Skirt Effect

A few years ago, you wouldn’t catch me wearing skirts. I’m always the pants or the shorts girl. I thought that skirts are so impractical, especially when one is commuting every day. However, recently I have found my love for skirts… maybe it’s the repressed girl in me trying to catch up for the lost days of wearing it. Now, when I wear it, I just feel super free, happy and girly!!!

I’m so in-love with this particular skirt, not because I just finished making it, but because it’s unbelivably poofy! Well, it should be! It’s around 3 yards long of fabric!! I was actually thinking if it needs tulle under it… but after seeing the pictures, I think it’s fine as it is. My 10 yards to tulle will just have to wait until I have time to make a big petticoat for moi.

So congratulate me for finally finishing my poofy skirt. I will not keep this though ’cause I will send this to a consignment store within the next few weeks. I’m just waiting for my tags to be printed and all that jazz. I also want to finish some more clothes before finally selling my stuff.

I just bought all these fabulous fabrics waiting to be turned into fabulous clothes… and I think this is my cue to go back to the drawing board. Wish me luck!

    Nooo, sell it to me instead. I need a skirt like that. Red is my favorite color, but I also would like something like that in dark plue and a royal purple. Siiiigh.

    Fabulous job!

    • elyoo Says:

      Haha. Royal blue would be nice!

      I’m still deciding if I should sell this online or just put it on a consignment stuff. I don’t really like making a lot of decisions. HAHA!
