Sew Behind The Times

Especially as I made this about a month ago and haven't got around to posting it yet!

I missed out on this skirt when it was in Topshop, and was quite annoyed. (I've only seen one person in real life [i.e. not Selina or Queen Michelle] with the skirt though. Where are all the rest of them?)I even looked on weird fetish clothing websites to try and find a similar skirt, but came up with nothing.
Then when I'd pretty much given up hope of ever owning a pvc skater skirt, I found some cheap black fake leather on eBay. So, £7 and two seams later, here's my own version of the Topshop "Pu Swing Skirt".

I realise im a bit late jumping on the whole pvc/leather look bandwagon, but the skirt being non-shiny means it's not too "look at me" so I think it will last me alot longer than the duration of the fetish-wear trend.

However, I am struggling with thinking of ways to wear it. I'm not sure what to wear with it except quite plain/close fitting tops. Any ideas?

  6. That skirt looks great, i've been after one for ages.
    A question about making it.. how did you??
    I was thinking I'd just cut two trapezium shapes of which the top edges were the right width for my waist... but I'm really not sure if that would work
    Any way you could help??
