My "Bjork swan fluffy-butt" skirt

    It's done (well except for the closures).  The hems suck and a pinked all the circle flounce thingies. I really don't know what to call them.  I spent HOURS on this crazy "avante-garde" skirt.  I'd much rather be sewing for me.  The skirt does fit me, but I would never wear it in public except on Halloween and you can't sit in it! Hehe!
    I had to draw inspiration from a bunch of pictures selected by myself and 2 other classmates.  I pretty much did what I wanted and then related it back to the pictures. That's not entirely true. I had an idea going into it of what I wanted to do, and then adapted my idea to include the "curveball" picture inspirations.  I felt like I was on Project Runway.

Dramatization:

My Teacher:  "By the way, you have to draw inspiration from these pictures.  Do a couple sketches....Ready...Set...Create!"

Me:  "WHHAAAAT?"


So here it is...its better than before, but I'm not proud.



PS.  Avoid Polyester Organza at all costs.  The fabric sucks and it leaves strands and shreds of shiny fibers everywhere.  I should have worn a respirator.

  1. I love the name you gave your skirt. It looks much better than Bjork's swan outfit--It is gorgeous!!!

  2. It looks a lot better than some of the stuff I've seen on the Academy Awards. Great concept.
