Beeing addicted to some of my clothes, now I have the power and the instruments to prolong its existance.
So here's how my mini MANGO denim skirt tranformed into a midi skirt.
And of course a lot of my inspiration comes from pinterest.
Kinda love this combination for this skirt.
It was my first complicated pattern. An poor me had to redo it twice. I don't believe I'm a perfectionist, but I think my type of body shape doesn't allow a lot of mistakes.
But the best part is that I can wirl in this skirt!!! Like a princess!
I was almost havin a heart attack when I saw my dad's art on his running pants.
OMG! That was a face palm to my handy sewing craft.
Of couse, after debating a while, he agreed that I can improve things:)
So I did!!!
This is the first time I'm almost 100% happy with my tailoring result.
Of course this skirt came out completely different from what is was on the magazine picture. But so is everything I do. Not every style suits me, so I adapt a new turn and make the best out of it.
I would defenitely give credit to my father, who got involved in this process with me and helped me with cutting the pieces. It is much funnier to do it with him.
We adjust the fabrics, play with cutting angles, reconsider magazine advice's and do it on our own at the end. It is creation we are talking about afterall:)
Plus to my dids, I saw plenty of leather skirts all over the trend magazines.And I even haven't expect it to be so popular this year.
D'you know what our happiness is?
It's two smiling faces covered with a hoody on the train. And the whole World can wait. We have ours.
We giggle, kiss and lough... just like two little squirrels:)
And we love, love, love!
Particulary me, today, learned a lesson.
A lesson of giving. Giving the things we like, love and own, but along with the fact that everything in this life is temporary, the things we have to learn to give up. Willing or unwilling. Especially unwilling.
It is hard to not get mad at myself. But it's even harder to realise it's not the life I'm losing, it's just a few things somebody needs more than me.
Still learning...always learning...
