MEMORIES & DUST

Greetings!
Well it may not be fall yet but I certainly have the Autumn bug. Autumn is probably my favourite fashion season. This year I plan to wear chunky sweaters, orange, yellow, brown...and skirts like this!
This is an example of a skirt I will be making for my shop. The waist band isn't elastic because I prefer a fitted waist band rather than a stretchy one. I have tons of cute patterns and fabrics like this one to create with. This skirt was sort of a test run, but I messed up a bit on the zipper. I may sell it later for a discounted price because of that! Or just keep it because I love it :)

The sweater is a good ol' find from Value Village. The best part? ELBOW PADS...or patches, whatever you call them.


sweater thrifted, floral skirt made by me, shoes from spring, top and bag from romwe
