Most Fridays I'm really happy to just be able to put on a pair of jeans, a shirt or sweater and some flats to wear to work but sometimes I want to wear something other than denim but its a challenge to find suitable non-denim separates, that are still appropriate for work without looking to professional, to dressy or to laid back.
- Added 1.5 inches of length to the hem of skirt
- Made size 18, no other alterations
- Used a golden tan 100% linen from Fabric Mart Fabrics
- Faux leather cognac colored trim was bought at Joanns Fabric
- Free hanging lining made from 100% cotton batiste
The shirt I'm wearing is from Macy's, I love that the collar, pocket and epaulettes are cotton poplin but the top itself is cotton jersey, its very comfortable.
The piping detail has been emerging more and more on the runway, two skirts that were my inspiration.
Celine SS 2010
Yves Saint Laurent SS 2011
After making so many skirts over the years, a skirt is just another skirt to me. I am trying to be more selective of the designs I choose so I can really add something worthwhile to my closet. This skirt is unique because of the leather trim, it gives it a "designer look" that I won't see going and coming.
If you decide to make it, let me know how it works out for you, it was a quick sewing project.
Well, this is the last garment of my Spring Summer 2011 Set 1, so next post will be the recap.
