I love getting dressed for occasion because I love challenging myself finding the perfect outfit to somehow match a particular moment. By doing this I'm trying to find excuses to buy more clothes while my wardrobe is literally in a terrible state, meaning there's not enough room and it's probably going to explode or to collapse one day!
Before going to Stockholm I was looking for the perfect airport outfit! Honestly I am not ashamed to talk about that because I am that kind of freak with that kind of obsessions! The Walter Van Beirendonck X Ikea fabrics I bought were the perfect start to create the best pyjama look ever! I designed the trousers from a basic pattern I found on the internet. And for the matching shirt I updated the pattern to come up with a kind of boxy short jacket with big elongated sleeves and giant cuffs. This whole outfit was made in three days right before our trip to Stockholm! I was very proud of myself because all the work I had done in such a short period of time and also because it was the first time I cut fabric to create a jacket and trousers! Unfortunately I couldn't wear the total look to the airport because of the heat as the fabric is definitely made for upholstery! But it doesn't matter! It is the perfect airport look ever! Wearing a proper suit to take the plane may not mean anything to some of you to but I don't care! You cannot imagine the pleasure when I realized I could create this pyjama on my own!
