Origami skirt & new hair
When I saw this origami skirt I knew I had to make it. The original pattern, which I purchased just before my holiday, belongs to a Burdastyle member.
Pattern: Origami skirt from Kleinformat
Fabric: 1m of Poppy Collection by Laura Gunn
Time spent: 2.5 hours, I did not make muslin for this skirt
Cost: $16 (fabric, pattern & invisible zipper)
The original instructions show this skirt made of knit jersey. But I wanted the fabric to be more suitable for the hot and humid Japanese summer, so I used this beautiful quilting cotton. The fabric is not very stiff (as most of the quilting cottons are) and feels nice against the skin. Due to many very detailed photos, the pattern and instructions are super easy-to-follow (the instructions are in German).
I also have to show off my beautiful sun-tan before it washes away, and a brand new haircut. My hair was chemically straightened because my curls and waves were driving me nuts and I did not know what to do with them, especially with hair as short as I like to have. For the past 2 summers in Tokyo, I constantly looked like a sheep. My hairdresser said that it'll remain like this for 5-6 month!!! Guys, that's the best thing I've done to my hair since cutting it off!!!!
But I made a huge mistake cutting the belt when my tummy was empty. After lunch in our favorite Thai restaurant, I had to breathe in for the photo-shoot ;) I'll increase the belt's circumference by 2-3 cm or so.
By the way, what's your favorite cuisine?
