Ever since I saw Angelina Jolie’s wedding veil embellished with the embroidered pictures drawn by her children, I’ve had visions of getting my nieces and nephews to scribble away so I can create something similar. Then Dolce & Gabanna featured children’s drawing in their Viva La Mamma A/W 2015 collection and my internal fashionometer went through the roof.
When, a few weeks ago I found this fabric online, someone almost had to call the emergency services.
It is IDENTICAL to a D&G Print and I was hitting “add to basket” before I had even fully realised what I was doing. I mean- LOOK AT IT!!!
So in double quick time I made myself a skirt and it really is the skirt of a thousand dreams.
Yes the photo is total and utter rubbish but after 50 snaps the camera just wouldnt get it right so I gave up. I must admit to not actually wearing it out when this photo was taken, I just couldn’t wait any longer to show it to you all. I have absolutely NOWHERE to wear this voluminous number to so you can expect to see me sashaying along the cereal isle and strutting down the frozen veg lane in Asda. Do I care? Nope. Maybe you can take a better photo for me when you see me.
I had a little extra fabric and so I’ve made three girls’ skirts (6-12 month, 12- 18 months, 3-4 years) which are listed in my Etsy shop.
I have enough fabric for one more adult skirt so if you would like to make one for you- any size- head to the shop and convo me!
