Inspiration Monday Outfit Keira Knightley

Monday, September 5, 2011

The two lovely ladies over at Two Birds provide bloggers with an outfit inspiration every week. This week's summery outfit is inspired by Keira Knightley..




My version....


The little guy wanted to know what Mummy was doing setting up the camera outside at 8am on a Monday morning! I wouldn't usually be so eager, but I am participating in Self Stitched September 2011, wearing at least one handmade / refashioned garment every day in September, documented on flickr which is shared with all other participants also sharing their garments on a collaborative flickr group.

Shirt: Thrift and resized/refashioned
(Excess material cut away for resize, used for ruffles on front of shirt)
Skirt: Lili
Sandals: Singapore
Jnr RF: PJ's Gift!

Love the outfit. Taking photos daily! And at 8 am! With a child living in your house! And you sew, too???? I am in awe. Like Pam, I like your look better than the original. Your outfit is more colorful and creative and less "prim," in my view!

That is a gorgeous skirt! You captured the inspiration wonderfully, and your little one is so adorable. : >

Thanks so much for participating in Visible Monday too!

I too like your skirt better. It is a really fun skirt and looks like it could be styled in several different ways. I like that.

This is such a fun skirt you're wearing! I love the pattern. That is such a cute idea to tie a shirt like that instead of tucking it in.. noted! ;)
