Birds of a Feather

27 May 2010




I've been feeling a little inspired lately, with Sex and The City 2 opening and all. So I took a stab at making a feather skirt. It was quite the task because I decided that instead of buying a boa and using the strung feathers that I was going to be daring and buy 5 bags and sew each one individually. Let me tell you, never again. Not only was it tedious but feathers were literally  everywhere. It reminded me of the time back in high school when one of my girlfriends dressed up as a disco diva (feathers included) for Halloween....Pink feathers were in my room, car, and some how my purse for months.

All in all I like how it mostly turned out, I imagined it 'fuller' but since I used the tightest spandex material I had, I'm not entirely surprised. I paired it with a jacket I reconstructed years ago, a black tank, and a bold necklace. Maybe a little too much accessorizing perhaps, but I was into it. Nonetheless feathers are in car again, oh boy.

What do you think?

Are you a feather queen?
