Tulle Late

diy open back sweater + skirt, zara shoes

Five yards of tulle later - the final result of my three-day-rushed-dress-making skills for a wedding a few weeks back.  Constrains on time turned the dress into a two-piece suit.  Though it wasn't as I originally intended, having two separate pieces actually made for versatility; the sweater, I eventually re-wore on an off day (seen here). Now if I could only fit this skirt into my every day...
