Leather on tulle

We are exactly 1 week to my daughter’s 2nd birthday and I am totally pumped about the little safari we intend on taking on her birthday weekend….Pssst, It’s a Surprise 🙂

I also want to attempt to bake cupcakes for her birthday to take on the trip. So swing any easy recipes my way. 

My tulle skirt hemlines are getting longer. They are super feminine and bring out the little girl in me. 

Like anything, the more you sew, the better you get. This was the first one I ever made and I think I’ve come a along way when I compare it to this one  and my absolute favorite one has to be this skirt that I matched with my daughter’s for our minime series.

For this ensemble, I added a leather jacket to toughen up the look.

Style note

Tulle netting is lightweight and doesn’t work well by itself; For a big puffy tulle skirt use 2 layers of stiff net.

*Fabric from Memsaab fabric shop on Parklands road.

These photos wear taken by Kevin Gitonga It’s hard to believe that he has been working as a professional photographer for barely one year, A true example of talent and passion. Check out his facebook page Kevin Gitonga Photography

    Tulle and leather! Love it! Kevin is such a talent, completely adore all the pics but if I had to pic a favourite I’d go with number 3 where you spread out the skirt and all the layers are visible 🙂
