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.

  • How adorable! :D

  • Love this! And your blouse is pretty too.

  • 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).

  • Cute! This is on my to do list for this fall/winter! I want to do one in corduroy.
