Chiffon Skirt

Outfit Details:

top: Asos
skirt: handmade by Me
bag: Chictopia

When I started this blog and I finally decided on the title ' Lipstick & Chiffon', I knew one day I would need to have the perfect chiffon skirt, since I have other chiffon pieces I love, just never the perfect skirt! I have been searching and searching to no avail. I got a skirt that I thought would be the one...but it ended up not being the ONE. 

One day I decided, hey I am going to go search for the perfect fabric for this amazing skirt I had in my head and just create it myself. And miracles of miracles I found it! I decided to combine the non-perfect skirt and the perfect material to create the skirt of my dreams. 

Next I took out my dress form and cut the pink skirt to the length I wanted and took out the waist, so I could gather the material to create a more voluminous look. After I pinned it, I cut the white chiffon material and then gathered it over the pink. Final step was to sew it together and place the side zipper in the seam! I still plan on finishing the rough edges of the pink under-layer, but for now it is one of my favorite pieces that I have ever made (all by hand too!)!

There will definitely be more to come with this skirt! Do you have that perfect skirt that you are obsessed with?
