This week for the Project Sewn Challenge, we were to make something Pink. Now I am a blonde, so pink is a good color for me. I wanted something simple but something that I could pair with lots of different types of outfits.
I found this great lace knit at Joann's. It is also stripes which I love. I thought about making an entire dress with it, but then thought, nope. I really don't like dresses. Why would I waste good fabric on a dress. Instead, I used the Seafarer Top from Sew Much Ado. (Used it last week too!) But this time, I made a facing for the neckline and just hemmed the bottom instead of using a band. I wanted a little more dressy look and I think I got it.
For the skirt, I actually had a maternity dress that I could never wear because it was too short for my liking. So I cut through the skirt portion to make this skirt. It is more fitted then the dress, which I like. And it is a really nice length.
Overall, I am very happy with the look. It is casual and simple, but dressy enough to wear to church or on a fun date night. I also had fun attempting to take pictures in the snow. Had to wear my snow boats because the snow was pretty deep. We got like 5 inches overnight!
