I was always so drawn to the fabulous belt print of these pieces...
...that I wanted to create my own version! This town and country vibe had to come to life and I finally had the pieces to make this myself! Time to DIY!
I started with a thrifted skirt...
...and then paired it with the most fabulous belt/chain/charm print from an old scarf. The puzzle pieces are complete!
To make this work, I used some fusible webbing and ironed it to the back (wrong side) of the scarf material.
Once the backing was attached, I trimmed around the outlines of the belts, chains, and cording...
...to make individual little strips to attach to the skirt.
I peeled the backing off of the strips and placed them onto the skirt.
Once they were in place, I ironed them down, using a damp piece of cotton in-between the iron and the fabric.
Post-ironing, my skirt was complete!
I paired my belted/chained/charmed skirt with a vintage golden blouse, Calvin Klein heels, and a Trina Turk clutch to complete the look!
This project couldn't be easier!
I love taking something from the runway and bringing it to life!
All in all, old skirt + old scarf = new Tommy Hilfiger lookalike!
DIY Tommy Hilfiger silk belt print skirt, success!
