The best thing about been able to sew is that I can make myself clothing and I really enjoy this when I get a chance to, so I thought I would start doing a series of posts on the handmade clothing that I make myself and how I personally style them.

So first up is my rad to the bone skirt, this has to be one of my favorite items of clothing that I have made for myself. I’m pretty obsessed with Alexander Henry fabric and the prints that they create, if your and avid sewer and have not heard of this fabric brand do check it out you won’t be disappointed, Its available form most online fabric shops.  As soon as I saw this fabric I knew I had to use it for something.

I decided on a calf length skirt with a curved waistband which sits perfect and snug on the waists and curves out to fall over the hips, I love this style of band as it gives you a little bit of definition and makes the skirt hang beautifully down.  The colours are great too because it can be worn with absolutely anything and still look smart casual.

I love to style this skirt up with a Bardot neckline top which is a personal favorite for me as I find this style flatters me more than a v or basic round neck. When wearing something like this it’s great to just experiment with what top suits you and it won’t take long, you’ll be rocking your style in no time.

If I’m going to a fancy do and want to wear this skirt I also team it up with a blouse which gives it more of a dressed-up feel.

Just so happens that when I made this skirt I found a lovely pair of velvet heels from TK Maxx which was a colour match perfection to the skirt. Now I have this great outfit that I can dress up or down for whatever event.
