Hey guys, been a hot minute I know but life's been too busy lately. Anyways, I recently started taking up sewing. Its been a desire of mine to learn for a long time but lack of available classes in my area just put me off for a while but then I discovered...YOUTUBE! Some channels have the most interactive and amazing beginner projects and one of them was a high waisted retro skirt. It was so easy for me to do that I have already made about three different versions of this skirt. I made a really short one that I wore clubbing for new years but right now, I made this one out of a 3.50 a yard fabric, 5.50 elastic and thread...that was pretty much it. I paired this with a simple white top, tights, a scarf, a belt and some flats. I love this skirt and I got so much compliments.


so, what do u guys think about my first voyage into the world of sewing?

I love this! many congrats you talented fashionista :) the sky is the limit when you get into designing and sewing your own clothes :) I love your style. My tip would be, keep experimenting, find shapes that show off your shape to the fullest and then have fun with colours and prints, AND keep wearing your designs with confidence you beautiful woman. <3
