Four Winds Harbor (+I made a skirt!) || Outfit & Project




Hello to you all! Long time no blog indeed, huh?
Well, I recently was busy thinking about the contents of that blog, what I want it to be, other things I want to post other than just outfits. There are some nice post I came up with for the near future!
Also, I've been studying a lot of math lately- to prepare myself for University (physics won't be easy...).

But, remember when in the last post, I said I'm working on a gathered skirt with pockets? Well, here it is! I did it without any pattern, just some youtube videos and previous knowledge. I added lining, pockets, belt loops and the cutest button.
The skirt is made out of cotton fabric from my local fabric store, and rayon fabric for lining,
Take a closer look;



You probably noticed those gorgeous sandals I'm wearing (how can you not, with their glowing beautiful color!). These are fisherman style shoes , original Meduse jellies. I had a clear pair when I was younger because I was afraid of sea water, and I didn't have to take them of when entering the sea ☺
They are the perfect choice for summer, they magically go with almost any outfit, they are super comfortable, easy to clean... and they are vegan! I think they are a great vegan replacement for the beautiful Saltwater sandals, that are made out of leather, unfotunately.
I got them from Sunjellies, and they have lots of cute colors, so I plan on getting more of them (I wish I had them in EVERY color☺).




blouse: thrifted || skirt: handmade || sandals: Sunjellies || necklace: antique bazaar (originally pilgrim)
lip color: SoftTouch VIP #337 (but I don't recommend, it is very sticky)
