We are going to be designing and making our own outfit for this elements event. We will be wearing what we make and serving Hors d'eoure on the day.
We started of designing our outfits. In the beginning I fond it quite difficult finding inspiration, because we could do anything we want it made it hard for me to decide what I'd like to do. Our outfit had to include at least one element of up cycling.
In the end after looking at a picture of a modern styled 1950's circular skirt on the W-Magazine webpage.

I stated looking for a template for this styled skirt and this is what I found:
|This is the black material I am going to use for the base of my skirt.|
|I folded it so I get two of those ^|
|After using the tailors chalk to draw on the curve I used the Fabric shears to cut along the line.|
|Finished with the cutting.|
