Welcome back to my blog.
This week I’m wearing a, self-drafted, front split sequin pencil skirt with a Miss Selfridge slogan t, championing the slogan and sequin trend.
The skirt is part of a set. I made a sequin co-ord for a Pretty Girls Sew challenge at the end of 2015. It was the first thing I ever made out of sequins. I love it. The batwing sleeves of the top makes it harder to wear, as it doesn’t sit comfortably under a coat or jacket.
The mix of casual, smart and glamour, makes this one of my favourite outfits.
The sequins on the fabric I used lay flat. So most people don’t realise they are sequins until they get close. I strongly recommend lining sequin fabric, this self-drafted skirt is not lined. Big mistake, my legs get covered in little scratches after a days wear. But that won’t stop me from wearing it!
Until next time,
