neon colours are so in right now, aren’t they? i think it’s rad! i may not have the guts to wear them myself, but i like this stabilo green colour, so when they reduced the price at my work place, i knew i had to get this fabric. (that fact that it’s Giorgio Armani fabric is an added bonus point!).
it’s kind of a heavy material, so i didn’t want to make a top out of it. i already have too much shorts, so i thought a skirt would be perfect. and then i went on to search what kind of skirt model is suitable for the fabric, and finally, my choice was to do a peplum skirt.
for the skirt, i used Burda pattern no. 7660, the D skirt. i added the peplum part myself using common sense. :D (it was around half a circle.)
and i also changed the zipper to be at the back so it won’t disturb the flow of the peplum. as if the stabilo colour wasn’t spring enough, i decided to throw in a neon pink zipper as closure at the back.
it may not be as perfect as those sold in fashion stores, but i love it and that’s all that matters!
