Thank you VERY MUCH to those who voted last week! I love the input! It looks like outfit 2 was the favorite last week! I was pleasantly surprised!
One color combination that I have always liked is blue and yellow. A few years ago when my mom repainted the bathroom she also took down the yellow shower curtain which quickly made it's way into my fabric stash awaiting it's fate to be found in a plethora of pinterest patterns.
It wasn't very long before I found a circle skirt pattern just perfect for the light, well draping fabric!
This is the pattern I used: Ruffles and Roses Crafts Circle Skirt Tutorial
I didn't add a zipper to this skirt, just an elastic waistband that is installed in a very funky way. I hadn't been sewing for very long prior to making this, so it's got a few quirks and odds mistakes that just make it mine. The other major quirk besides the elastic is the very uneven hem. I just tell myself it gives the skirt a little more of a bohemian look.
1. For a casual look I paired it with my chambray shirt. I tried it tucked in with a wide belt but decided I liked it better untucked which looks more casual and is SO comfortable anyway. I put on my off white flats because I felt like any of my dark shoes would look odd with the rest of the very light colored outfit.
2. I dressed up the skirt with a work outfit. The yellows in the cowl neck tee I'm wearing aren't the same shade as the skirt, but the skirt still makes them stand out well without clashing and the royal blue cardigan is already one of my favorite pairings with this skirt! I put on the only high heeled sandals I own to add to the formal look.
3. While trying on different combos I put together a third outfit with this skirt!
You could say this outfit sort of kills two birds with one stone because I sewed the shirt too! I used Simplicity 1692, Vintage 1940s tops, top C. The 'making of' story behind this shirt will be in a later post. I think this particular outfit may be a new favorite of mine. But don't let that sway your vote!
Sorry they're a little blurry this week. Especially the first set. My camera was just not into cooperating a couple of days ago!
