MADE WELL BY MITALI
As most of you guys know, my sister is a self-taught seamstress and has a deep passion for garment construction and sewing. I introduced you all to her blog - A Stitch and a Story in my last post and today I want to introduce you to one of her latest creations.
She made this A-line skirt for me a couple of days back and here are the results. Isn't the skirt absolutely lovely? And I love the way it fits on my waist, to tell you the truth, the only reason I am wearing that belt is to accessorize because the skirt fits me way too well for any adjustments to be needed. If you've seen my previous posts, you'll know I am a big fan of flared skirts. In general, I usually prefer clothing that is a tad bit lose and doesn't cling to my body as I like my clothes to be comfortably chic. Mitali has managed to add just the right amount of flair needed for the skirt and may I also mention, the length is on point!
A-line skirts look good with almost anything, the best way to style them is to wear them with basic tops or if you want to go a step further, wear it with a coordinated top or a sweatshirt. I chose to wear mine with a basic black sweater, a scarf (another beautifully hand-painted silk scarf from Mitali's creations) and some shiny socks with gold sandals. I wanted to add a color of pop to the outfit and the colorful scarf did the job. All in all, I Iove the way the outfit turned out and a big applause to my sister, Mitali for making me this wardrobe staple skirt. If you want tips and tricks on how the skirt was made, please head to Mitali's sewing blog - A Stitch and a Story!
