Vinyl Greek Knee Draped Skirt

Hello everyone. Of course you know the drill, in order for something to be considered "Haute Couture" which is a high class, hand sewn garment sewn with "couture" techniques, or just by hand, it can only be considered this if the garment is made in France ( for those who did not know ). I do not know much couture sewing techniques, but I do know most of the simple hand sewing stitches, and see replicate the techniques that are obvious in garments. It does have slit to show the leg starting half way from the thigh. This design I created with a metallic vinyl.I have always loved Greek history being from the marble sculpted statues by Michelangelo and of Nike.

I love the draping details that are shown. In this piece, I en-captured that, and I am quite glad by how much I achieved it. The fabric does not create an itch. It is completely a draping fabric. It can also be worn two ways. The fabric draping can be worn/switched to both sides of the hip. The longest part of the skirt is 35 inches, and the shortest being 25 inches. I did make it where the waist size limit is 26½ inches or 26 exactly. Hip size also has a limit of 34 inches or smaller.

New Fashion Designs Hounds Tooth Pencil Skirt w/ Bow for sale on ETSY

Hello to all my fellow followers.
I know it has been a while since I had refreshed my blog with the status of thing's, but I am definitely remembering to post many thing's. I actually have stacks of information to pin up on here for your eyes. One of the many subjects I want to cover are Houston Fashion Week. I can not finish saying how much of a fun experience this was for me and the motivation, and high honor I had to volunteer for this. I basically feel like the most proud Lion posing nobly on a rock, with a fluffy chest hahaha! I do not want to post that late, so that will be coming. For now, I do want to update to all my audience that I have re opened my ETSY shop, which is getting items like fashion designs made by me consisting of hand sewing ( haute couture ) and also machine sewing. I am also still selling other vintage items that are hard to find. Right now I have blazers, and a hounds tooth print pencil skirt with a bow on the back that was basically made by draping ( without a dress form ). I mainly played with the fabric, and I really loved the outcome. It fits me like a glove which I am hoping fits others too. For me, it is hard to find clothes that are flattering, just because I have a naturally skinny body. Just like plump women, there are also those that just never gain any weight, so I am hoping that this skirt is purchased by someone that will be very happy with what they receive.
