For my second outfit I chose a fitted skirt and crop top ensemble.
This was my original sketch from my visual diary:
The skirt repeats the same hem line as the fitted dress and is made from the same fabric, being my digitally printed satin, though I will place the feather print section on the hem rather than at the waist, giving a different effect. The crop top is to be made from black ponte fabric in the body area, pleather at the shoulders and stretchy mesh for the sleeves. I would like to have the sleeves rubber printed with a Celtic knot work print down the arms. This would not only bring in more of my Celtic feel to the outfit but also add another design feature and create more of a unique, intricate look. Though this will need to be done by a professional and the top may need to be re-made to have this done.
Below is my first toille for the skirt:
The skirt required a bit of work to get the fit perfect and to get the point at the back to sit the way I wanted but luckily this was not too difficult to achieve.
