The Camille Skirt

It was time for a new DYI project and it was time for a new skirt. A red one, cause even if red is my favorite color, I had not red skirts. Until yesterday at least!

Thank you to Camille - my new hero - and her fabulous blog, and despite of my awful sewing skills, now there is a new skirt in my closet.

Inspired by Miu Miu Spring 2008 collection,


Camille made some wonderful "miu miu-esque puff skirts" and days ago she posted a detailed tutorial for making them. All of my previous sewing project have gone bad, but I knew I had to try this one, so I bought a nice red cotton fabric and keeping my fingers crossed (well, not really) I began to sew...

I made it a little bit longer than the ones Camille made, so it looks a little bit less poufy, but I still like it!
After an hour these are the results:




Can't wait to make another one! And maybe a shorter one too. I think it should looks perfect with a pair of little ice skater boots...

@ theclotheshorse: all the rooms in my place are bright colored (blackcherry red, sage green, peacock blue...) but I need a new camera to show them properly!

@ jelloonsprings: those kind of booties are really popular but it seems they're also a little difficult to find!!
