Transparency & asymmetry

4This time, I wanted a transparent skirt. But not one like all the ones that were a must-have a few years ago: …a unique one!

Time travel

I don’t know if you remember, but back in summer 2014, these skirts were absolutely everywhere:

Even if if loved the little “transparent-but-half-only” design, I don’t like to wear a cloth just because it’s the trend —I do quite the opposite actually!

And the more I see a cloth on other people, the more I get bored with it. So, I slept on this idea for a while until I find the perfect pattern in a sewing magazine:

“Anything else?”

Well… yes! I wanted a loose top to go with it. As far as the skirt is quite sensual (short and transparent), I wanted a loose top, not low cut at all and very casual.


Remember the half transparent Tee-shirt I published a few weeks ago? I decided to re-used the same pattern and to buy the same fabric —but in purple this time. All I had to do left was to change the back and the collar.

The fall colors were perfect to match the purple/black colors
