Sydney Again., A...
I saw this skirt in October last year and loved it so saved the photo in my “dresses to knock off and deprive the designer of mega bucks” folder on my computer. I only found out the other day who the designer was.. Alexis Mabille (never heard of you, sorry Alexis). Then I did a search last night and saw how much Alexis would make if I bought a skirt like this. Around $1500 – $2000. EEEK.
it cost me less than $70 Aus using very good quality silks.
I just used a very simple a-line skirt and winged it all. I was a bit disapointed how shabby the original version looked in the screen grab i took and I SHOULD have done a side zip to eliminate dividing the sash into two. It would have looked far better plus saved me around 2 hours trying to align it up perfectly. Just missed out by 2mm.
I am so in love with this, I could never have dreamt of a design like that but glad I managed to piece it together. It really feels like a piece of art.
