OUTFITS | Wearing the DIY Shirt-Skirt

sweater: secondhand turned inside out
skirt: DIY
necklace: Nelly
bracelet: secondhand
lipstick: Airborne Unicorn by Limecrime

Have you ever noticed how fluffy the inside of a sweatshirt is? Today I turned this lightgrey one inside out to expose its white, soft other side. I wish I could say that this is what I'm wearing today. But the reality is that the weather is too cold and rainy. So just for the pictures I switched my DIY poptrash jeans for the shirt-skirt I made last week.

Update on the DIY: After having being able to really 'test' the skirt by wearing it, I realized something pretty obvious; a regular cotton shirt wrinkles. I would advise either using one in a smoother more flowy fabric, or a thicker one like denim.

Absolutely love the all-white outfit! And I was curious to see that the shirt skirt would look like on, and this has definitely convinced me to make my own!

Heel mooi. Ben ook benieuwd of het rokje niet doorschijnt? Either way looks lovely. Btw, ik loop stage bij Designer Cafe in Utrecht, misschien lijkt het je leuk om een keertje langs te komen!

Such a good idea!! :D

Michiel Steur said...

Je stijl is zo bijzonder! Prachtige outfit! Het contrast tussen die vrij simpele items met die chique sieraden is zo mooi! En die DIY vind ik ook erg leuk! :)

Over het COS overhemd, ik weet niet zeker of ze voor dames dezelfde modellen hebben, maar ik ging voor no. 2, vanwege het feit dat hij het mooist getailleerd was, en geen button down heeft, wat ik erg geschikt vind om ergens onder te dragen!

Sharon said...

The skirt looks even better on you!

Cute cutre diy skirt!

Zoё said...

that jumper looks heavenly soft, I didn't even notice it being inside out!

Yth said...

Heee, ik heb ook gisteren nog m'n grijze sweater binnenste buiten gedragen :)
Nice trouwens, zo'n grote sweater met een delicate dun rokje. Inderdaad ontzettend jammer dat NL ons geen korte rokjes laat dragen. TERWIJL HET AL GEWOON MEI IS.

Incognito said...

It is genial to see how you transform things, I really like your minimalist style. You really make me want to try and sew eventhough I am not good at it.

Great combination with the skirt and the shirt, I also like the small gold details you included, they are very discret and yet they add something unique to your outfit.

I rather like wrinkles, but that's me.
Loving this ensemble on you, and the fact that you turned the sweatshirt inside out...and that you always see the possibilities in a garment - a sign of true style.

Lini said...

Fantastic outfit! I love 100 % viscose for skirts and dresses, a nice and flowy material.
