Lose yourself in layers! My friends at Who What Wear and I did just that when we fell for Charles Anastase’s Fall/Winter 2012 stunners. The melting pot of military hues infused into feminine silhouettes is to DIY for! Get creative with your own color story and start “swatching” skirts, shirts, dresses…anything your heart desires.
To create, find a basic mini skirt to use as a base. Incorporate several complimentary shades of felt material and cut rectangles in an array of different sizes. Get creative and cut shapes with scalloped edges to add dimension and movement. Use a fabric hole punch to add extra detail to the felt pieces. Place swatches in a random pattern, starting with the bottom of the skirt, and overlap as you move towards the top…making sure to completely cover the surface. P.S. — Lay your complete pattern out before you start to glue. Adhere the swatches directly onto the skirt and hold in place for a few seconds to secure. Before you get decked in your DIY, make sure to let the skirt dry completely on a flat surface….and then, swatch out!
