Style Crush: Gwen Stefani

I caught the video for no doubt's new single a few days back ( I like it by the way) and I was thinking to myself how amazing does Gwen Stefani look! I mean the girl/lady/women, is 42 for pity sake!!
Well wow oh wowzers is all I can say! She doesn't look much different to when No doubt first started, ok she might, have possibly, had a little help (who knows? It is Hollywood after all!) but doesn't she look great!

I've always admired her style too, a little somewhat of a chameleon  and not afraid to experiment either her style to me is a little more everyday wearable, say compared to Paloma Faiths and I tell you another thing I like about Gwen Stefani although she is 'another' one of those celebrity's donning a clothing line, L.A.M.B to be precise she apparently comes from a line of seamstresses and grew up sewing herself, she has allegedly also sewn some of her label samples herself too, which I must admit is like gold dust for celebrity's to do, even some designers don't do that!! so that gives her double browny points in my little fashion book!!

Lets take a squint at some of her styles that make me googly eyed!!

     oh and that wedding dress!! Don't get me started, I'll save that for another post Haha!!

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
