Cars, planes and spaceships

I honestly didn’t know what to think of this fabric when I saw it in the shop. On the one hand I kind of loved it, but then again I wasn’t sure if I could stand looking at it for longer than a few minutes.
But as it was super cheap I took it with me to try out my custom skirt pattern that I made for myself (now that I learned how to properly do that in fashion school).
I like the outcome and it fit pretty well, so I added a decorative metal zipper in the back et voilá: new skirt.
And it has cars and motorbikes and computers and freakin’ spaceships on it! :D

If you’ve got the time, come on over to my blog.

    Love the skirt and the fabric, and I agree with LadyDanburry the exposed zipper makes it special :)

    This is really cool! Love the cut of the waistband and I’m with Lady Danburry on the exposed zip.

    I thought the front was good, then you turned around and there’s an exposed zipper! My favorite.

    I love it! For me, skirts are a canvas for FUN, and I don’t think of them seriously. Dresses, OTOH, demand a more subtle approach. You look wonderful in that skirt-great fit!
