40s suspender skirt

I saw so many gorgeous 30s and 40s suspender skirts popping up here and on numerous blogs in the last few months, I just had to make one for myself. This one is self-drafted (the first thing ever I made without a pattern (-:) and it was such a fast and simple make! I might add pockets the next time I make a similiar skirt but otherwise it’s perfect and such a versatile piece. There are a few more pictures and details on my blog, Draped in Cloudlets.

    How cute that is on you! Looks great with that pretty blouse, the two contrast nicely.

    Oh gosh that’s adorable! I’m loving that blouse, too. May I ask if you made it or bought it?

    Thank you so much 🙂 I bought the blouse in a vintage store in Brussels that sells a lot of old german traditional garments like embroidered blouses or skirts (for next to nothing).
