Silk n’ Satin

I love the silhouette of these shoes…they are my favorite pair


I love this skirt; it was the first silk skirt I ever bought. Originally it was a long and awkward length, a common problem that many an old thrifted skirts have. But I carefully hacked off some of the length and carefully stitched it up. I’m very glad I took the time to shorten it. Since it has proved to be a invaluable staple in my wardrobe. since it can be worn casually or go formal I love the beauty and versatility of my simple satin skirt. wearing: thrifted shortened silk satin skirt, Banana Republic silk blouse, vintage chain and rings, trusty leather belt, Giani Bini shoes.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!! And thank you so much for dropping by!!!

  1. Thank you so much for your suggestion Nickie. I do have some ideas but as of yet I won't be divulging them. But thank you again!!!! =)

  2. Laura, I took some pattern making classes & thought they were really challenging. I had never used a pattern before, just draped stuff on myself & pinned it. I would highly recommend taking any kind of class you can find around you, not just for the learning but for the challenge of the assignments.

  3. xshumzx thank you or your kind words!!! I wasn't sad. But I guess I do look a bit sad, I didn't notice that… But I'm cheerful now!!!

  4. Thank you Nickie!!! I am thinking of going to design school So I can hone my skills. But they keep on growing the more I use them, (the parable of the talents comes to mind.) THe only time i use a commercial pattern is when sewing for other people and they ask me to use the pattern. Even then I try to do my own thing. Also for every thing I design I either make a pattern or free-hand it.
    Thank you so much for reading my blog. =)
    I really love yours too!!! You have some amazing vintage =)

  5. Nice job on the skirt. You are very crafty with a needle & thread. Every time I come to your blog you are showing some new cool thing you've whipped up or altered. So many people don't know how to sew. I think it's an invaluable skill. Have you ever considered going to fashion school? Or becoming a pattern maker?

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  6. You did a great job with that skirt, it looks good on you! I understand about thrifted skirts, I find so many I like but the length is always off.

I love to hear what you think!
