DIY helmut lang inspired jersey mini/maxi








Image: Net-a-porter

A little black dress with a difference.. Detachable 'modesty'!
I made this dress from some black stretch jersey I had lying about. It started off as a simple mini with merely side seams and a slit to slip my head through, with a panel down the back holding it all in shape (almost). Until I came across this wonderful Helmut Lang asymmetric jersey 'maxi'! I was inspired to make a detachable 'side skirt' (not sure what else to call it really), it's just a piece of jersey with a couple of hook and eye fastenings attached. I think it turns the dress from casual to elegant status instantly.

Wearing with Asos boots and DIY Kirrily Bengal choker (seen HERE)
