I've been feeling very festive lately, and it reflects on my current fabric choices. I picked up this plaid green plaid print after seeing Thu wearing a cute plaid skirt a few days back. My only plaid skirt is a school girl one that makes me look like I'm trying too hard to relive my youth. So, a skirt-crafting day was in order.

I can't say I'm happy about how this skirt turned out. I was trying not to make any more paperbag skirts for myself because I already have 3 or 4. But after making this A-line skirt, I think the paperbag ones suit me more.

That said, I've decided to custom-make paperbag skirts! I won't be offering it on my etsy shop just yet, but I am going to open it up to a select number of readers. If you are interested in purchasing a custom-made paperbag skirt from me, please click on the new button on the top right-hand corner and read through all the instructions before contacting me. 


What are your favorite kinds/styles of skirts?


ps. The lovely Tabitha from Defining Tabitha featured me on her blog! Please check it out here! And if you aren't already following her delightful blog, please do!

  4. Apparently tulip skirts suit me - well at least I think they do but I always think I have fat thighs and skirts do nothing to help this belief at times! Loving the green and the black though x

  12. Love this checked and stripes combination. It's great to be able to know how to sew your own skirt! I'm really inspired by u to try doing a paperbag skirt myself.

  14. Love your lipstick! I've never though about pairing plaid and stripes together before, that's a brilliant combination. I just bought a striped shirt and I wonder if I can dig up a plaid skirt from somewhere.

  15. Awww really? I really love this skirt on you! It's all about what you're most comfortable and confident in but I think this is really cute. Maybe I'm just a sucker for A-line skirts. ;) Wish I looked as good as you do in a skirt like that.

  21. Although I do admit that I like the paperbag skirt better on you, I also like this one too because it's different. I don't know if you watch Gossip Girls but it reminds me of something that Blair would wear, very preppy chic. I absolutely love the color and length of it. It's always good to try different things and you did a fab job here and so creatively Ms. Talented! Loving the red lips as well! I think I might try red lipstick this weekend and glam it up a bit, I always wear the same nude pink lip color.

  27. i love midi skirts cause it allows room for food when i'm eating out and for anything corporate, bandage skirts would do. wow, for others it's all skirts but for us girls there are different names. haha!

    good luck with the selling of your diy. keep keeping up. :)

  28. I have to say, I don't wear a lot of skirts. I've always found them pretty awkward on me, in terms of length/shape/fit, but seeing your variety of skirts makes me want to add some to my wardrobe!

  32. My favorite kind of skirts? I don't think I'd be able to describe them if I tried, I like skirts to cinch a the waist and preferably be either a little above knee or little below knee for a flattering look. I quite like this skirt on you, I think you look cute and the pattern is fabulous. You look super cute in the black knee socks.

  33. I enjoyed your feature on Defining Tabitha. You're getting a lot of blog exposure these days! You totally deserve it :)

    I rather like your green plaid skirt. I'd suggest play around with it some more until you get comfortable with it. The A-line silhouette can be very flattering :)
