skirt- DIY, jumper (minus collar)- H&M, tights- asos, shoes- my mom, bow- DIY

hi guys :)
its official: i'm obsessed with velvet! after i went fabric shopping last week and picked up two yards of it, i spent the whole weekend sewing this skirt, bow, turband and collar (mainly the skirt, which was based on the American Apparel velvet skirt). I decided at the last minute to put them all in an outfit together (except the turband haha, which i'll include in another post). A thing about velvet is that it really reminds me of Christmas, so i'm really getting into the holiday spirit! i'm actually going to Bangkok and Shanghai during the holidays (of course i'll take loads of pictures) and i can't wait! where are you guys gonna be up to this Christmas?

  9. I love this outfit so much and it suits you perfectly, Im inlove with your skirt, do you mind putting a tutorial/video tutorial on how to make it? Ive seen so many velvet clothes out there at the moment but not a skirt one and yours look like it came from a high street store so I'd really love to make myself one for Christmas as well :) also love your blog and this Christmas holiday I'll be in Belgium and France, hope you enjoy Bangkok and Shanghai :)

    I've been wanting a skirt just like that, and wanted to sew it but the local store didn't have that colour of velvet. I hope they'll get it soon, now I want it even more, when I saw how perfect it looks on you ! :)
