Black and Bright Skirt

Monday, April 11, 2011

Fashionpeach informs her readers that vibrant acid brights, and fluorescents are on the catwalk once more.

Which has given me reason to have a play around with a dress I purchased from Salvos op shop last year. Being quite the fan of black and bright colours together, as seen in previous refashions here and here, this dress caught my eye not for its shape, but for its contrasting black/flouro printed fabric. It was a handmade dress that did not sit right at all. I suspect the dress had been cut to a Chinese style dress pattern, much like this:

I've cut the dress in half..


Added a piece of wide elastic to the top of the bottom section, easy peasy...


And now I have a new black and bright skirt..



This black and bright coloured printed skirt, currently for sale through Anthropologie.com, costs $128

So clever ~ love it. I can imagine this would also look gorgeous with tall black boots and the warm black tights that we suddenly need now it's autumn.

Thanks for your comment, too! It sure is a stunning house, I hope the person who is lucky enough to buy it will treasure it too.
