Like it or not? - Jacket Skort

When I got my sewing machine for Christmas last year, I scoured many different websites and online communities for inspiration. Clothing reconstruction was one of the concepts I was introduced to and although I didn't like everything I saw, I was still incredibly amazed at the level of skill and creativity.

Yesterday I stumbled on this reconstructed skort made from two secondhand jackets from fashion designer from the Netherlands named Tineke Greijdanus.



I've seen this baggy pants style on quite a few street fashion blogs. Personally, this one is not for me but what do you think of this creation?


I found this on a website called DesignSpotter which is an online "design magazine dedicated to everything related to young modern contemporary design including: accessoires, books, design-contests, exhibitions, fashion, furniture, hotels, lighting, new materials, residential architecture, interior design and prototypes."

it´s a fun piece, but it´s not something esay to match, you must have personality to wear it...and i am sure you have!

what would you like my name to be? - I would like your name to be shorter for one. lol j/k. Thanks for the love on the blog.


Hey Kira! No problem at all luv!
About the piece, I think personality is one thing but body type is another. I can't see this being good for my shape in any way.

hmmm...it's questionable, do want to look like your wearing adult diapers? I've also seen it and it would appear that we've zipped past the early 90's and smack bang into the mid 90's for our fashion inspiration!

I really line your blog and I've linked back.

Imelda - haha, adult diapers. I know some people would like these but I'm not a 90s fashion fan.
