La môme caoutchouc

Added Feb 22, 2011

Nordrhein Westfa...






Inspired by the fantastical mme caoutchouc, that is the elastic woman in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s movie ‘Micmacs’, I made these high waisted black velvet shorts with suspenders.
I just loved how cute they looked, though I definitely cannot twist my body in that way (that is also why I did not need to use elastic fabric)! :)

Now all I need is an occasion to wear these…hmm… :D

    Looks really good on you. I tried this before with a high waisted version. It just makes me look fat but not on you though. Good job! Watched Amelie. Now, I have to watch Micmacs. Thank you for the recommendation. ^^

    You can wear this at absolutely any occasion, if you ask me. I like your shoes as well.
