Using Over Skirts to Dress up a Look

Nikki HarrisonComment

I am the Queen of Overskirts!  I love them, and make them all the time. 

An over skirt is a simple piece of fabric that uses pinned layers to create "pleates". After you can fasten it over top of another dress or skirt to dress it up.

Below are a few examples of overskirts I have made for photography.

I purchased the gold lace on sale, and planned to place it over top of this particular black skirt that I had. I also made the crown out of Worbla, and hand painted it. This was from my workshop in Italy in May 2017, so I needed a crown that would lay flat in my suitcase so it wouldn't get wrecked during the travel.
