|They even had a car!|
I made the skirt a couple of summers ago. I had this organic hemp and cotton fabric sitting around and couldn't decide what to do with it. Then one day my boyfriend at the time asked me if I wanted to go to this party and I had nothing to wear so I decided to whip something up!
I wanted to do a simple silhouette with a twist, something sexy but not over-the-top so that if I wanted to wear it during the day I could. So I settled on a chic pencil shirt. I loved the stripes on the fabric so I decided to accentuate them by doing different panels of fabric and changing the orientation of the stripes. To add a little edge and interest I put metal zippers at the princess seams (both zippers are fully functional, they completely separate to make the skirt really easy to get into). I got the top from a thrift shop in Philadelphia on South Street. I can't remember the name of the shop now, it was a while ago.
Also I got a package from Soho Publishing yesterday....
