I am so pleased to say that one of my new range of fashion tulle skirts has been included on The Wardrobe Challenge blog
I love fashion writer Hanna’s blog because I enjoy seeing how she styles her outfits and it’s great to see someone doing it for all the curvy girls! She got in touch with me last month to discuss what kind of skirt she wanted and sent me lots of photos of other similar skirts so that I could get an idea of the kind of outfit she was after. This was a new experience for me because, although I’ve made 100s of tutus, skirts and fancy dress costumes, this is the first time I’ve made a ‘fashion’ skirt and I didn’t know how it would turn out.
After a lot of discussions about the type of fabric, colours and style, between us we came up with a sheer grey layered design with contrasting black underskirt and waistband. Hanna is new to über-girliness and didn’t want anything too OTT straight away; “I was always a tomboy as a kid, and a teen, and a young adult, and a not so young adult.. haha. Basically I’ve only started to embrace all things girly during the past few years, and lately I have been dying to get my hands on a tulle skirt – which is the last thing that the young me would have worn”. Thankfully, she emailed me straight away to tell me that she loved the skirt and would be blogging about it, fantastic news! I’ve since made a few more of these skirts and will be adding the new range to my website soon at www.TutusWingsandPrettyThings.com in a whole range of sizes, lengths and colours.
Here’s the link to The Wardrobe Challenge’s Outfit Of The Day blog post and more photos of Hanna styling-up her tulle skirt as a ‘Punky Princess’. I think she looks fantastic, and while you’re on her blog, click around to see her other OOTD posts for inspiration for your own outfits.
