New tartan skirt (of awesomeness!!)

I had the idea for this skirt for years, the design is a skirt that my collegue wore at work and I made this one in a different kind of fabric but I especially liked how the skirt was pulled up at certain points, giving it a bit of a messy look. And tartan fabric, I love tartan!

I had this fabric for months but I just didn’t get to it until I had a day off, it was rainy and I kicked myself in the butt and just got to work. It didn’t take me as much time as I thought it would and I am sooo happy with the result. 😀


I thought about putting pockets on it because that way I might be able to wear it to work but I decided against it and maybe if I make another skirt like this with a more subtile pattern, I’ll do that.

I made the skirt with a zipper but I didn’t like the top part of the skirt so I put a band on it with a button and that was it.


And I’m wearing the same boots again, they just match all of my outfits. 😉

What do you think of this skirt? I’m thinking about making something to go with it, a vest or bolero or something but I’m worried the tartan fabric might become “too much” so if I do that I might just make something out of black fabric with tartan details like a pocket or something.
What do you think?

  1. Wow that is awesome! I wish I had those skills! ❤ It reminds me of the girls I saw at a renaissance festival this year that were selling CD's for the band Tartanic (Fitting no? ;)) they kind of were these awesome pirate like wenches and I fell in love with the way they dressed ❤
    And I think you should totally do an additional piece with tartan accents!
