skirt - charity shop, diy, top - diy, necklace - matalan, creepers - pj shoes
I've wanted a mullet/ assymetric hem skirt for a while now, but as you can imagine, they're not something you're likely to come across in a charity shop. Last week, a charity shop in my town had a sale of all skirts and trousers for £1. I bought this skirt intending to wear it as a maxi, but found the material and pattern a bit too much to wear in that way. So I thought I'd give a mullet skirt a try - if it went wrong I could just hem it to an above the knee skirt! I'm really pleased with the way this turned out though and it was pretty easy to do apart from the fact that there was just so much material (everytime I sat down on the tube, my skirt would end up over the unfortunate person sitting next to me - I definately ended up touching an old man's knee trying to claim back my material!).
With the cut off material, I added a touch of colour to the t-shirt by sewing the fabric onto the sleeves. I got the idea for this from Meg so if you like mine, you can purchase a similar one from her at Stud Muffin Vintage at the bargain price of £10.
I'm entering this outfit in a competition over at ethicalfashionblog.com, so for the purposes of the competition, the ethical items in this outfit are the skirt (second hand and upcycled) and the t-shirt (upcycled).
