*Constellation*

The fabric

Around 2 years ago, I discovered the Malhia Kent shop in Paris —near Bastille. This is the perfect occasion to purchase luxury fabric for quite cheap! After having sewn a first top with yokes using one of their red-and-silver fabric, I bought an hypnotic gold and blue one that reminds me of a constellation of stars…

1-sewing—That is the moment where I could just look like Gollum whispering “my precious”…

The pattern

I decided to make an easy skirt and used the following pattern; but made the skirt shorter and removed the decorative buttons:

As the fabric was reversible, I went for the blue with gold touch for the bottom and the gold with blue touch for the belt… Plus a dark blue lining for the finishing!

The shooting

The least I could say is that this was a collaborative project! My friend Nare (a real fashionistas —see her blog here) was the fashion consultant, Anne-Sophie the model and Florent (see more of his pictures here) was the photographer.

Lucky us, it was a pleasant sunny Sunday at the park of Les Buttes-Chaumont and the fall colors were still here
