Do you remember my post a while ago about My Wanted Fall Outfit? I dug those items among the most coveted designers, like Chloe and Oscar de la Renta, but obviously those pieces I can't afford yet, so I came up with an alternative solution. Since the Carven skirt was my biggest craving, I decided to sew a replica of it based on what I saw on my computer screen, so I honestly never touched it. I had to design a pattern, I found a stunning piece of 100% wool suiting material right in my local fabric store, made it from scratch, and I had a lot of fun with it. Now I truly enjoy the final product and I hope you do too.
What do you think? Has it ever happened to you, when you found a great alternative to a closet craving?
