MiH x Coco and Vera :: Sewing ::
Friday, 10 April 2015
People, I made that skirt.. I know I can hardly believe it myself - I made that skirt, I made that skirt, I made that skirt... And Cee is totally rocking it - because there is no way in a million years I would look that good in it. And she styled in Paris - in Paris, man, can you believe it - and for a proper photoshoot, as if it was for a magazine. Thank you I heart Paris to let me share the pics!
And the result is quite stunning. I cannot believe it - I think Mr MiH may be sick of me swooning over my own handy work. To be fair I never thought it would look this good!
You will remember the first Tibi skirt I made for Cee. This one is really similar - same pattern, same fabric (from the same shop but in a different colour of course), same modifications (ie lengthening it).
I only changed the pleats to make them more like a real Tibi skirt and also added a wider horsehair braid (found here) at the bottom for more effect. Also you will note that it was in the end totally worth matching the fabric to the braid - thankfully I did, phew!
The pictures make me as happy as I first had a glimpse at them on instagram. I may leave you, and have my happy dance in the living room!
