Brooklyn, New Yo...
I am wearing two of the exact same pieces in these pictures. One as a top, one as a skirt.
There are casings with a double drawstring at the top (when being worn as a top), and belt loops at the waist, along with another tie. There’s a shorter side and a longer side, I’m wearing the shorter side in the front on top, the longer side in front on the skirt.
You can play with this top quite a bit for different looks. For a skirt, turn it upside down, tie the belt at the waist, and fold the top down. Sexy slits at the legs that are the armholes when it’s a top. Beautiful construction, French Seams.
These are wardrobe elements. I show you two ways to wear here, but I don’t want to tell you it’s a skirt, it’s a top, it’s this, it’s a that. Play with it and see what you like. Maybe it’s a collar for you. Or a hat. Or a garter belt. Or a sleeve.
