Sew Faux

9 May

If you’re a regular Dettamoda follower you know that I’ve recently designed and sewn some of my own garments. I’m completely in love with the process of choosing the texture, color, silhouette, structural and applied design that make the garment my own. This week I created a simple A-line skirt in a faux brown leather. I’m particularly pleased with the fact my seam ripper (the handy little gadget that removes unwanted stitches) only made one appearance. In the past I think I did more ripping than sewing. I’m learning people!

Fashion Tip  ::  A-line skirts look great on most body types. Choosing a skirt with structural or applied vertical lines and pockets, like seen here, creates the illusion of smaller hips.

The skirt easily pairs with most shoe styles. Today I’m pairing it with brown leather booties and keeping the jewelry super simple.
