I finally got pictures of my second Capital Chic Manhattan. I had the hardest time pairing it with a top in my closet- mental note: make a top to go with this skirt! But then, my daughter, who took the photos, pulled out my Lolita Patterns Olive and while I don’t think the pictures do it justice, the colors look great in person.

I love this skirt! Long in front, short in back. The jagged edge in front is my fave! I still haven’t done the exposed zipper- I keep wanting to finish the skirt before buying that kind of zipper and I buy invisible zips in bulk so I always have them on hand. IMG_20141128_171003765 IMG_20141128_171009152

I used a shiny sparkly gorgeous fabric from the shop I work at. I had to use both sides to show off the difference. I love it! Since this skirt uses so little fabric, you can definitely go stash diving and use up some fun remnants, which is definitely my plan. IMG_20141128_171105721

I also paired the skirt with the Laughing Moon corset I made nearly two years ago. (Can’t believe it’s been that long, by the way!) The bra showing is a new acquisition. It’s the Freya Deco Hatty. I’m in love with Freya. I have several of their bras and they fit so nicely. I don’t know that I’d ever wear the skirt with just a bra and corset but the look is worth exploring, if anything within the comfort of my home…and the internet apparently. Ha!
