Wrap Skirt

November 21, 2011

I’ve mentioned the lack of fabric choices in La Ceiba that leads to silly things like this, so once again I fell for a utility fabric with a funky print used for…TADADAAA…baby blankets!

Car print fabric

The texture is kinda cool, it promotes safety driving and has tinyLondon buses all over so t’was a keeper. Made a pattern for the “petal” skirt before cutting (I’m not a gifted cut-and-voilà type of seamstress, dangit), and I think it turned out okay.

I don’t really fancy T-shirts or anything jersey, but I guess they’re a must-have for lazy days. I did like the cut & color of this one and it was really cheap, but the Snoopy print on the front was a wee bit too much, even for me. I figured I’d go Rei Kawakubo on it and wear it inside out, serged seams shining in all their mass produced glory.

Shoes: Topshop (perhaps the only thing I own from Topshop, what the heck, it’s really not as cheap as everyone raves, at least not for a student on a budget like myself. By the wayyy, neither is Zara!)

 Anway, it’s nice to have a new skirt to add to my kooky-prints collection. ♥
