I have been wanting to make a France-Paris themed accessory and this week’s theme came in handy. My creation is not accessory-inspired per se; the theme lies in the detailing of a charm. When I purchased the zipper (which comes with a little hook for a charm), I envisioned a simple rectangle floral skirt with the zipper attached at the center back so I went to search for the perfect fabric. I am so glad that I found it in my usual local fabric store. They are so well-stocked with Japanese cotton and almost everything else I need! Yay!!!
I made this new skirt for the new school term(it begins today, 9th Jan!). I hope this semester will be a fruitful one and my application for a 4-week exchange in France is successful.
So here’s a lucky charm for the application!
