this skirt wasn’t my design. i stole the idea from Only I (an Indonesian brand), it was one of their products from their collection 2 years ago. i happen to LOVE tulle, and when i found this pleated black tulle, i just knew i HAD to get it. i combined it with a normal black tulle that my mum got me years ago, and checkered black & white rubberband. this was of course done without any pattern at all. (in case you’re wondering, sewing tulle fabric onto a rubberband is not exactly a walk in the park.)
the idea is to wear something under or over this skirt, unless you want to show your buttocks to everyone. it was a darn good invention from Only I (so proud that they’re fellow Indonesians!), but since i missed their collection from 2 years ago, i had to make it myself. and now, i see similar skirt in Promod and Asos, to name a few! talk about perfect timing :D
