I Thought Royalty, They Said Peacocks..

So I want to show you guys one of my favorite pieces that I have made. I feel very proud of myself for how this came out. Over the summer, I took a pre-college program for three college credits. Below was a wrap skirt that was our main project for the course. I got an A on it (points lost only for a few visible slipstiches in the hem. Considering I slipstitched two layers of hem practically asleep until 4am, I'll take it).


Oh das me!


When I was looking for the fabric at Mood's, I was inspired by this fabric I had seen that reminded me of French royalty. When I saw this cotton mix, I was immediately drawn to it and felt that this was exactly what I was looking for. However, whenever I asked other people's opinions, they replied something like, "Oh my goodness, that's so cute. It reminds me of peacocks!" Not what I was going for, but I mean, whatever works..

Truly, this is everything I am and everything I love to do. The greatest satisfaction to me is seeing my hard work turn into something beautiful.

P.S
I just wanted to thank ALL of you guys for the growing success (or what I feel is) of this blog. Whether you follow me, leave kind comments, or just read anonymously, I really appreciate it. You guys have motivated me to keep going, and I hope I have provided you with something interesting to read.

When I have 100 followers, I will create a Twitter for vivant. Sometime after that, I will create a Facebook page as well. At the moment, I have just created a gmail specifically if anyone has any questions or comments for me personally. vivant.fashions@gmail.com. Once again, thank you all for everything!

  3. I love that skirt! Especially since it poofs out near the bottom. I have skinny legs, and short pouffy skirts give me a healthy rounder shape. Great work hun. You should consider selling some of your pieces on Etsy! Or offering to do a give-away for popular bloggers; that'll reel in a lot of followers!
