As part of my Me Made February I wore a skirt today that I have made some years ago. And it still fits me – hurray ;-)
It was inspired by an unaffordable skirt by a Japanese designer (not sure exactly which one), which I had seen in a shop in Hamburg. It is a simple jeans pencil skirt with a piece of Japanese silk appliquéd to the front. I love its contrasts: The jeans fabric makes the skirt tailored, whereas the silk gives it a certain flow. The pencil form makes it quite business-like, whereas the Japanese painting adds something exotic and flashy.
I felt very extravagant wearing this skirt today. The red colour really pops. Although I have to admit that I think the pharmacist and my little one’s paediatrist thought I was crazy. Oh well, you cannot expect everyone to have your sense of fashion, can you?
