simple white skirt

Benesov, Czech R...






I wanted to make a white skirt with elastic for such a long time! Also, many burda style´s members inspired me so much with their white skirts… I made mine using a beautiful embroidered cotton fabric and plain cotton fabric for the inner layer, because the embroidered was a bit see through. The fabric is so soft and light, it was like sewing a cloud.
I like it! I wear it a bit low, it looks strange to me when I wear it at the waist (maybe because of the thick elastic waistband?).
Perfect when you have a dirty 1, 5 year old running around…! :) Lol.
On a side note: I feel really weird when taking these pictures of myself… does anybody have the same feeling about this thing?

Material Notes

crinkled cotton, embroidered cotton, elastic




Garment Type
Casual, Romantic

      Oh, thank you thank you thank you! I´m just far from being perfectionist, and not very neat person :).

    I think I have the same look in my eye with the camera on auto shoot… yeah… weird… On the other hand that skirt is totally fab! Effortless looking… (like a cloud!) : ) and … I really really really like your wall! I love the color… how did you ever come up with this idea of the yellow? I LOVE it! (and may steal this idea!!! someday : )

      Thank you so much for you comment! (I can finally see it today…). I think I love that skirt :).
      The story of the wall: it was this yellow at first (mix of ochre, green and black colors) and it was a bit of an experiment, but I kind of didn´t like the color, so I repainted two walls gray (two remaining walls still need to be repainted gray too..). And, simply, I ran out of the gray! :) There is usually a couch in this corner, I pushed it away for the photo… but during the time, I started to like this imperfect look :).
