It is pattern that makes a trend, or how they are sewn?



"Do not look at stars as bright spots only. Try to take in the vastness of the universe."

Maria Mitchell 


Spots seem to be coming in as a trendy pattern at the moment, with Karen Walkers current collection including a spot
 of polka dots, & many other stores online and offline. Although in my opinion polka dots are kind of always in (they are
 a classic pattern and, like stripes, and cant really be unfashionable), however the way a garment is designed can be a 
little more temporary. I've seen many forms of the cross-over pointed skirt/skort around the internet (I've seen so many I'm 
not even sure which place made them originally) and liked them from the beginningHowever I hadn't managed to find
 one that fit my price range and fit requirements that we could get sent to New Zealand, so I had to get a bit creative. After 
spotting this spotty fabric I decided to combine the two trends into one piece and in a project runway style mad dash
 attempted to whip up this skirt in time for my friends 21st (only 4 hours away from when I started eek). Luckily fate was 
looking kindly upon me and it actually came together with no problems, woo!

Unfortunately due to bad timing and bad weather this past week I didn't manage to get home at the right time for Ellen to 
take photos of this, so I attempted (with a degree of success) to take self timed photos. Well, what a mission! It was a struggle 
to get the angles I wanted, especially in focus. However given how much I love this new skirt I figured I be able to get more 
photos to share soon enough, till then these will have to do :)

  12. Ah, the infamous Zara skort. I'm personally sick of seeing that piece splashed all over every blog these days. However, I love that you've gathered inspiration from it and made it different with the polka dots. And I prefer the length you've chosen over the Zara version. Very classy and stylish. You are by far one of the most creative blogs I've found...so glad I came across it!
