I mentioned the other day on twitter that I was ready for a good ol’ DIY sesh and here is the result – my first “drapey sheer oversized kimono jacket thingo” (the exact words I used to describe it to my mum when I rocked up at her place and demanded she teach me to how to draft a pattern for it). For a beginner pattern-maker, I am pleased with my little kimono and am looking forward to making more, perhaps in a burnout velvet with fringing if I dare get confident.
The incredibly hot weather here has been causing havoc for me so this is a pretty simple outfit – I sensed a potential overkill of the leopard print (shoes, peekaboo bra and hair band) but then, I’ve never thought that too much leopard was a bad thing. Unless perhaps you’re Paris Hilton. Then it is.
Anyway, Chase took these photos down the end of our street this evening- I feel lucky that we live only 15 minutes from the CBD yet still by the bay. Especially on days like this!
