The Minaj Skirt

Can you guess why I called it the Minaj skirt and what do you know my first name is Nicki too lol.

I need a beeper when I walk backwards :)

Does this skirt make my ass look fat?? For once it's not actually my ass lol.

I decided to go ahead and use the last cotton fabric I had bought to make my 3rd skirt.

I designed a long pencil skirt with a slit in the back, it has double peplums only in the back. I wanted to mimic the old Victorian ruffle back type of skirts that have bustles.  I found the peplums fanned out too much:

So I further manipulated the fabric by rouching the peplums with clear elastic to get more of a "fluffy butt" (faux bustle) look. This skirt is also fully lined and has a facing waist band, invisible side zip and small clasp for closing. Sort of Victorian Retro meets Steampunk minus the gadgetry don't you think? ;)

Here are a few more pics just for fun:

Ok hopefully I am done with that "bee in my bonnet" and I can move on to making tops with my bodice sloper!!

Happy Sewing :)
