(Silk top: Urban Outfitters, Watermelon Skirt: DIY, Under skirt: Topshop, Shoes: Marni x H&M, Necklace: eBay, Bracelets: Miscellaneous)
Nothing like spinning around your living room on a week night in a poofy skirt while wearing a bow in your hair! I find adding one of these tutu underskirts to any outfit makes my mental age drop significantly and results in continuous sashaying and twirling.
I did a little DIY on this former Topshop skirt that I got from eBay, I purchased little drop Czech glass beads from online to act as the seeds and got some grosgrain ribbon for the waist band. It was a simple and rewarding DIY, if not slightly childish, this is honestly the skirt of my 10 year old dreams. Since finishing this one I have furthered my potential sewing-mental-breakdown by considering other fruits I could make, Strawberry is top of my list.
If anyone wants instructions on how to make this skirt or information on where I got the materials just ask! I'm sure if I make another, a friend would be a happy bunny!
Does anyone have any other fruits on their mind that would make a good skirt?
With love from,
