Royal Maxi Skirt w/ Bow
After creating the wedding dress that I recently posted, I felt inspired to create a dramatic skirt to wear to attend the wedding. My friend Faith sent a beautiful brocade floral fabric a month prior as a birthday gift. I swear, this fabric is one of the most beautiful fabrics I've ever seen in my life. Thank you so much Faith!!! Btw, if you were interested in this fabric, she found it at Joann Fabrics.
I draped all 3 yards of fabric onto the mannequin. I knew that the only way I was going to maximize the beauty of this fabric was to use the entire thing. I mean.....nothing went to waste. Many of you got a sneak peek, behind the seams look on my Instagram of this skirt incomplete and in it's draped form. If you are interested in how it was draped. please check out my IGTV.
The front of the skirt, I thought was beautiful, but the back is the real surprise. I would describe this skirt as a glorified apron. LOL! I'm so obsessed with it!
Some of you on instagram were worried that I was going to outshine the bride, but that wasn't the case at all. She was the star of the show and all eyes were on her. WITH THAT SAID.....LOL! Literally EVERYONE knew who I was! I heard people whispering, many people came up to me and talked to me about the wedding dress, the reception jumpsuit, and of course, my skirt. One lady, literally picked up the bottom of my skirt and almost exposed me because she couldn't believe I made my skirt. She looked through all of the seams and was just in awe. I for sure gave her the death stare. LOL!
Overall, I had a great time. Several of you saw how much fun I had.... if you had the pleasure of watching my instastories. LOL! As you can tell, I'm that friend that people always want to have around to have a good time. Anyone want to invite me to a party? LOL!
Here is the link to the top I wore with my skirt. I purchased the black one for this look and I previously purchased a nude color one. I'm obsessed with this top. I'm going to buy them in all colors! SO be prepared to see me in it.
