Hey guys! As many of you already know, I am going to Paris! Whenever I travel to a new place, I love to throw together outfits inspired by things I have seen on t.v. or in a movie. Sex and the City has always been one of my favorite shows, and whenever I think of Paris I always think of Carrie in her beautiful black and white stripes. After doing some digging, I was able to determine that her shirt was from French designer Sonia Rykiel and sold at Sak's Fifth Avenue. The shirt is obviously no longer available, as Carrie wore this a whopping 12 and a half years ago! I scoured the internet for something comparable, but I couldn't find anything. Soooooo, I started studying the design of Carrie's shirt and opted to make my own version of it instead. Keep in mind ---- I am not a seamstress or anything of the sort, I don't even own a sewing machine! My sewing skills are what most would consider very elementary (all my knowledge from my high school days of Home Ec). But, what I lack in skill I definitely make up for with determination and inspiration :-)
Here's how I did it.
Things you're going to need:
- black and white striped skirt (big vertical stripes)
- 2 black and white striped shirts (small horizontal stripes)
- thick black elastic fabric
- needle and thread
- fabric glue
If you have any questions please let me know!
Happy sewing <3
