My most recent sewing projects revolved around skirts. First up is a cream colored lace - a fabric I fell in love with at Joann's. I put together an outfit that looked good in the mirror (I swear LOL) but looks a little off in the photo. I think next time I'll need to tuck my top into the skirt to play with proportions. Which do you trust? Mirror or photo?
Top: BR Slip Dress (old), Sz 0
Cardigan: LOFT, XSP (old)
Necklace: F21 Two Tier Pearlescent Necklace, $10.80, I LOVE this!
Skirt: Lace DIY
Black Peeptoes: Blowfish Festival Wedges, DSW (comfy to stand in but not great for walking a lot bc of heel slippage)
Next up is the nautically inspired Kasia skirt:
Top: H&M Sheer Bow Blouse (old), Sz 2
Skirt: Kasia DIY, see pattern here from Burdastyle
Please ignore the tights and shoes - I know they don't go with the outfit, but I just wanted to show you skirt :)
And a close-up view:
I heart nautical-styled garments! When I saw this pattern, I instantly fell in love. The ruched side hip panels and the buttons just drew me in. I used a heavy navy-colored suiting material for the skirt from Joann's. I can't say that this was the easiest thing to sew as I had to redo it several times and even then had to completely forgo the pockets, BUT I do like the end result.
I think maybe next time I'll pair it with gray tights and a top with some gray as well. How would you wear this skirt?
