This skirt was carved out of an old hideous mu-mu like dress that I found at a local goodwill. I loved the spanish style lace that covered the thing and knew I would use it somehow.
About a month later I decided to turn it into a couture skirt for my university’s spring fashion show and added tulle and an ostrich feather for extra pizazz!
This was the first time I had ever made a couture inspired garment and am very proud of my piece!
Unfortunately I did not get any pictures of this on the night of the runway show, and only have some of myself in it.
cotton, elastic thread, tulle, feather, patience!
