wearing: pink and pleats


All thrifted. The skirt used to be a strappy shift-style dress that was about seven sizes too small but I chopped the top off and turned it into a skirt. Huzzah! It’s actually a bit more of a green colour in real life, but my camera didn’t pick it up too well.

    Gorgeous colour – peacock green/blue almost!
    Loving your sleeveless blouses, too.

    You sound like you're pretty nifty with the needle and thread! If the skirt is greener, your outfit would remind me of watermelon, haha.

    I love the color combo. When we were in springtime all I wanted was greenblues and pinks. Lovely.

    @jane: haha I'm a bit of a hack – I'm still yet to master sewing perfectly straight lines. Anything too difficult I always end up taking to mum!

    @herecomesthesun: bring on summer and all its colourful glory!
