CORAL PALETTE



Coral cotton shirt


 

Hi Huns...


Apparently the word on the street...The high street that is!...Coral...It's hot on the runway...

You see...I'm not really a Coral kinda gal...But have been experimenting with bold block colours recently...Rather than reverting back to the same colour palette...I'm trying so hard not to guys, So bare with me!...Burdastyle pattern used and as my signature...i always deviate slightly not too much from the original pattern by adding some sassy slits at the sides...


Now the skirt....THIS SKIRT!....What a terror!...You wouldn't have fought it...But i had to battle with this skirt and it wouldn't let up...Every step of the way...It was drama!...Remove lining...Insert lining...remove lining again...reinsert lining...what a pa-lava...


It was becoz of the static of the faux suede fabric against the lining created some kinda friction and as i'd completely stitched round...Therefore bagging the complete thing out...It kept drawing upwards when i walked...YEA!...So imagine it...lifting upwards towards the crotch area...Not the one!...So i had to unpick...not the entire thing so reinserting the lining again for the 100th time...Eye roll...


But this time round have the hem free and loose...In-particular at the bottom and vent only of the hem to be free and detached from the outer shell...Well it Proved better...The static completely stopped therefore no longer drawing upwards...Keeping my modesty in tact...

Thank god for that...i was about this close...from calling it quits...
