SEW WHAT? A Little Black Skirt & Blouse, that's what!


Who needs a little black dress when you could have this? My client cam to me with this beautiful inspiration picture of a black on black skirt and blouse made by tscouture. I made a similar set with a twist. The skirt bottom is a bubble bottom with a tulle filling inside. This was my first time making a bubble bottom skirt and my client wasn't too sure about it but rolled with it. What I do know is that you need to wear a petticoat under this skirt to keep the bubble wide and beautiful.

This was totally a self drafted make and I think it was a good effort for my first time making this type of skirt. There are a few things I would do differently with the extra-wide waistband and the bubble. I do plan on creating another bubble skirt and I can definitely see this in an African print. The big ass fabric flower was a first time project as well and I will be making a tutorial soon.

[pardon the pleats because I did not iron them for the pictures......I know, I know, just let this one go, it's not wrinkled!]


Here is the outfit in action! She looks fabulous. [I wish I was at her photo shoot so I could have fluffed out the skirt before they took the pictures for more drama.]

  3. Beautiful! I like the dolman sleeves with it since the dress already has plenty going on I think the seamless sleeves work much better , less stuff going on. And also great idea making a large waist band Accentuating the waist I think also is important to balance out the big skirt and a belt would have been too fussy! This was a complex idea but you did all the right things and it looks fiiiine!
