I had an XXL unfinished skirt in apple green color; the texture and the color was fabulous to me and I wanted to create a one of a kind outfit by combining it with a gorgeously completing top, and VOILA!
I hand-dyed the top blouse into deep lavender (which was gray before); then I turn the skirt into fish-tail style on hem and embellished it with vintage lace and deep lavender color hem; then I made a belt which is based on burlap and having three hand-made rosettes, that connects the top and skirt and turns it into a whimsical outfit.Ah, also, I made a separate rosette brooch, whether you wish to wear it only and without the belt.
Such a distinctive look for special occasions, (vintage) weddings, country gatherings; and all in all, for any woman who would love to stand out in the crowd.
