Feather Skirt

For as long as I can remember I've always wanted a feathered skirt but sometimes when you look at the store brands does it make sense to spend over £70+ for feathers stitched onto a skirt !? This is my first attempt at customizing clothing...eeek!

I purchased 4 boas & used them all, I think it does depend on the length and width of your skirt, I don't recommend the large boas.

Were going to want to attach our feathers in a zig zag pattern, so the feathers hang downwards towards the sem.

If you have a zip on your skirt try and get the feathers as close to the zipper as possible so that it can conceal it.

& my finished product.
