I had a 50s themed party to go to recently and my best solution for the outfit was to make it myself. So last minute, I made my first ever circle skirt and I was suprised at how easy it was to make it. Under 2 hours, I was able to go from 2 pieces of fabric (cotton and tulle) to what you see in the photos.
I’m quite happy with the result and I was even voted “best dressed” at the party, so all in all a success!
