DIY Bandage Skirt
I know I promised an outfit post but (haha, April Fool's, jk!) Dennis has been awfully busy with work lately and he hasn't had the time to take photos of me. So instead, I'd like to share with you what I have been doing out of boredom :)
I have been searching the net, blog world and youtube since last year for some bandage skirt tutorials. It's been years since this skirt surfaced on the fashion scene but to this date, I haven't found a single tutorial. I find that kinda odd. Anyway, I decided to try making one with or without a tutorial. I just depended on some photos and my photographic memory. Why after two years only now? Because I'm bored and second, none in the market ever fitted me properly. They were either too long or too loose.
I couldn't find the actual fabric they usually use for bandage skirts so I opted for this one instead. I wish I could say this fabric was such a steal but it really wasn't, it's the most expensive fabric my amateur hands have ever worked with at P390/ yard. I was afraid to lay my hands on it and start the project for fear that I might just botch it up real bad and let the beautiful fabric go to waste but it's there so I might as well try.
With my green efforts in mind, I recycled this old tattered shirt into my new skirt's lining. I wanted it to be fully lined with some weight to it so my panty line doesn't show :)
Here's the finished product:
i love the red lining against the black brocade fabric
I am really proud about this project because I honestly didn't think it would turn out this beautiful. I saved me quite a bit of money :)
Let me know if you want a full tutorial on this skirt, I can make another one in a Spring color and document it...
or if you wanna buy one, I'm selling them for P900 or about $21, just leave me a comment or email me :)
