"Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life." Bill Cunningham
It is amazing at what your hands can do if you just put them to work. I told myself that I wanted to make me something to wear on Easter and well I did just that.
Mind you I have not sewed a clothing item since my senior in high school. I remember it like yesterday I made my MC Hammer pants and a shirt. He was my inspiration and he still is! Wow! I wore it to school too.
Now that has been over 20 plus years ago and I will have to say I did an awesome job on my first "Regal Maxi" skirt. Tutorial purchased from Mimi G and the fabric used was 3 yards of yellow Shantung that I ordered from Michael Levine's in Los Angeles, California. My blouse was actually a tank top and the lace top I wore over it. These items were purchased at Maurice's. My jewelry was found at Kohls on clearance believe it or not and my shoes were a nude color purchased from Shoe Dazzle. Love my skirt!
