Love pleated midi skirts they’re so easy to transition into fall, i wore this white pleated mango skirt all summer with crop tops but now that is a bit chilly i just put on a chunky sweater and it looks great, it also helps dress it down so i can wear it anywhere during the day.
Sweater and shoes: Zara
Had this oversized vintage coat hanging in my closet since august, waiting for the weather to get colder, I usually don’t wear such big clothes cause i’m petite but i fell in love with the boat print of the coat, so i decided it was time to show it off, i kept it simple with an H&M bodycon dress, suede over the knee boots and tights to keep it warm.
Tights: Forever 21
I promised i would post the DIY of the drapped skirt i was wearing, so here it is, it is a bit tricky but so worth it!
- Streetchy fabric
- Measuring rulers
- Pencil or something to draw
- Iron on adhesive or you can sew it
- A pencil skirt that fits you well
First, place your fabric on a flat surface fold it in half and on top of it put the pencil skirt that you will use as a guide.
Cut the excess fabric and leave about an each for seam allowance.
My baby wanted to be in the picture haha. Now from the first layer only, take the bottom corner X and bring up, to the height of your hips and the O to the left where the shortest part of the skirt will end.
Now you have three layers, place the iron on adhesive in between or sew the dashed line. Locate the elastic in the dashed rectangle and fold the fabric, i suggest you sew the elastic on it will last longer.
Finally turn it inside out and your skirt is done! hope you’ve liked this tutorial.
Took advantage of the “black friday” here in Mexico, is not quite the same, the discounts are not as good but i don`t know what else to call it, anyway i bought the chunky of white sweater and tights that you saw on my instagram and this super cozy blue sweater, thought it would look great with my midi leather skirt (not real leather) and these heels i bought in Paris and hadn’t been able to wear. I love the black and blue combo, wasn’t sure about the texture mix but once i put it on i actually loved it, what do you think?
Almost impossible to shoot with this wind, here are some of the pictures that were not as bad.
