HI DARLINGS! Today is all about having fun, lol. I saw this great look by PRABAL GURUNG’s Spring RTW 2019 show and I wanted to make my version of the sheer skirt and bodysuit. It was a lot of fun to make and I don’t know that I would actually wear it much but I love it! I need a sexy date night for this.

I am going to post a BEHIND THE SEAMS look on my IGTV today but here are the details on what I used. For the skirt, I used an older MCCALL 5431 (out of print) skirt pattern and modified it to add princess seams. I drafted a new waistband and did two rows of drawstrings and three rows of 1/4″ elastic. I used a mix of chiffon and satin for the skirt and for the bodysuit I used a rib knit and SIMPLICITY 8513.

I lovingly call this my little mermaid outfit, lol and if Ariel grew up and was going out on the town this is what she would wear, ha!


This beautiful illustration of my inspiration outfit was done by my dear friend CRISTINA TUDOR, you can check out her work HERE.
