my White Lies skirt

Added Dec 29, 2010

Beograd, Serbia






Few weeks ago White Lies were playing in Belgrade, so I decided that I need a new skirt for that occasion!
I wanted to make this skirt since I saw apiary’s False Cummerbund skirt , obviously I’ve copied her shamelessly :) Basic shape of the skirt is the same as the one from October issue of Burda magazine I’ve listed below, I’ve just changed the pockets and waistband and made it super short.
I sort of like it in the end, although I’m not quite sure. I usually wear everything on my hips but I made this one high-waisted, it feels a little weird. Guess I’ll get use to it eventually?
Hope you like it!

Material Notes

it’s the same drapery fabric that I used for my dear jacket , some sort of polyester I guess.

    I think it looks fabulous on you. And far better than mine did on me! I had the same problem as Tabyaby whereby the gathers at the front just accentuated my belly! :-)

    It’s great! It looks good on you and you decided well to make the waistband higher. I also made this skirt and I was helpless with this gathered stuff just in front of my tummy (I had two children so it’s not as flat as it used to be once) without any way out of this! I decided to wear my skirt (because it gave me so much work, I WILL wear it) only with a broad belt (it isn’t broad but I can’t find the word). And I like the idea with the pockets. It suits you well and makes your waist look very very slim! So you should try and get used to it :)

    I love this skirt! It looks pretty versatile too. I’ve been looking to make something similar, thanks for the inspiration to get to it.

    Naravno! Treba iskoristiti adute jer sve brzo prolazi, ja na žalost tek sad sa svojih 28 to počinjem shvaćati… :)

    I love it! Now I want a cummerbund skirt. I, too, usually wear stuff on my hips and high-waisted skirts feel WEIRD. But I think you have the waist for it—-it looks great!
