OUTFITS | Selfmade Foam Skirt

Photobucket

Photobucket

sweater: COS mens
skirt: DIY
heels: Mango
nails: Nail Rock metallic foil

Yesterday I made this skirt inspired by Tibi's fall winter 2012 collection. I don't even know what this fabric is called, it was one of the cheapest from the fabrics-shop and is as synthetic as it can get. It was a challenge making it because the plastic foam was sharper than my thread and kept cutting it. I ended up sewing the skirt by hand entirely but it was very much worth it, I'm sure I'll be wearing my new baby the whole week.

I just knew you would DIY this when I saw your last post about the Tibi catwalkshow. The fabric looks intresting. I would love a sweater in this fabric too.

You did a great job. I love your skirt. I wish you'd explain and shown the process of creation but other than that I love it.
And it was a great idea to match it with a COS sweater. I'm in love with that brand.

COMPOSITION TWO said...

The correspondence is of nail polish and rock especially beautiful. However, the men sweater Paat not particularly well. He makes the whole outfit, unfortunately, a bit bulky ...

all I can say is wow…. the skirt looks so well made. Did you ever take any classes on design? Or are you just a self taught miracle?! :)

ps. on your tweet about copycats…
Don’t worry about it! You are you, and you are the only one you have to compete with! just keep bettering yourself, and don’t look at others because that can stop your growth.

Viveca Ø. Johansen said...

Such a great look! Well done with the skirt :)

I've been meaning to DIY this Tibi skirt as well! I was thinking of maybe metallic spray print though! It's cool that you were able to find a fabric that was so similar!
