Iro and Buba: 2 ways
What I Wore: Church :)
Hello Everyone! Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great. Helped my friend moved and then spent the rest of my weekend in New Jersey. I was in Jersey spending time with my new adorable nephew.
I actually made this iro (top) and buba (wrap skirt or wrapper) and wore it a few months ago (See Here). The first time I wore it (left pic), I tied the iro "wrap skirt" into a tulip style skirt. It was kind of a funky and sassy look. It was a new twist to a traditional look. I wore the outfit again the 2nd time (right pic), and decided to change up the way I tied the iro to make the look more traditional.
I loved both look but my favorite is the 2nd look. It was more classy and gives a cleaner look. Which look is your favorite?
For My DiY Fashionistas; Here's how I made it.
Buba "Top": Vogue Pattern 8984; I'm hoping to do a tutorial on how to make it without a pattern soon. Hopefully in the next couple of months.
Iro "Wrap Skirt": I cut 2 yards of fabric. Hemmed the Cut-Ends so that it won't fray. And added ties at both ends (used as a belt to secure the iro after it's wrapped around you).
Fabric: Vert Brush Black and Red Crepe || Handbag: Aldo
