Red Gingham Silky Skirt

This was one very easy last minute project. I’ve made it last summer and wore it just one time-for opening of my exhibition. Not satisfied at all ’cause I look fat in it. :/

    Love the red gingham – you look fabulous. Women are way too hard on themselves- we can be fabulous whatever size we happen to be.

      Thanks, well it is true what you say, but somehow we’re brainwashed to be perfect only if we are 90-60-90 and nothing else. Over the years we tend to make piece with our bodies but nevertheless from time to time we feel unsatisfied with what we were given. :)

    You do not look fat in this at all!!! I don’t think you could look fat in anything! I think you look fabulous!

    Oh, but the exageration to the hips gives you such a lovely hour-glass. Isn’t that what every woman wants?! I think you look just lovely.

    With that tiny waist of yours, all you exaggerate with this is your hips… I would not say you look fat in it. Anyway, I really like the bow detail, and I’m such a fan of gingham!

      This is a belt, I made it out of grossgrain ribbon, it goes pretty much with everything. I like these fabric but it doesn’t “lay” well and because of that my hips look a lot bigger, that’s why I don’t like to wear it. Maybe if I narrow it…
