Being insanely last minute as usual, this outfit was in peices and was (literally) sewn onto me – thanks mum.
I liked the mix of colours and textures the mix of left-over fabrics made for this outfit as a whole, and I didn’t mind all the compliments about it =)
I basically just made most of it up on the spot, but I used a pattern from NIDA for the underbust corset.
The skirt was made of satin and tulle, the top from satin, and the corset from a heavy woven cotton, saitin, plastic boning, bias binding, eyelets and cord.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
