With the new movie set to come out next year and with the boyfriend who’s love for Star Wars that had permeated my mind, I couldn’t help but be inspired to design a look of my own. Sure there were cute graphic tees out there…but they were mostly for men, hardly any for women, besides the one I had stumbled upon at target, as featured in a previous post. I found several on amazon as well, but I wanted something more unique, more “fashionable.” I couldn’t afford the star wars emblazoned runway dresses from Rodarte.
Plus I’m not so sure those gowns are something you’d stride around in on the day to day.
Working in fashion you’d think I’d be on top of it and have a skater skirt or two in my closet by now, but I didn’t, and so that’s how I decided on my silhouette. I was hesitant to pursue this idea, because the last I had seen star wars fabrics at Joanns they were more so designed for linens rather than for apparel. I wasn’t in a patient enough mood to search and order fabric online either. I made the trip to joanns and stumbled upon a discovery of new star wars fabrics. Even better it was glow in the dark! Gahhh, how cool was that! I was sold.
I bought the fabric, drafted a circle skirt pattern, and whipped it out to wear for work the next day. Paired it with a quilted sweater from target, a simple gold necklace and my favorite booties. It definitely made for conversation at work, both for its star wars print and for its silhouette.
I shall leave you with this….May the force be with you!
