Ok so THIS OUTFIT !!!
I have had this idea for a while, I originally wanted to use a black and white stripe print but when I saw this ….ALLL that went out the window!!
Shirt: Chess Print Cotton KnitSkirt: Stretch Suiting Fabric ( yes again) 🙂
Store : Handcok Fabrics
Cost : total 25.00 ( give or take a dollar or two )
To make this top I used an old t shirt pattern that I had made for myself . I had to take it in a tad because apparently I\’ve lost a little weight since the last time I used it 🙂
The skirt I made on the fly. I measured my waist and added a Inch seam allowance. I then made a 4 inch waist band from that measurment. The skirt was a bit of trial and error . I started out by taking my waist measurement and cutting it on the fold for the FRONT piece , I then repeated the same steps for the back piece.
I cut it on a circle skirt method I\’d learned……
Bare with me Y\’all !!
I am definitely learning . I\’m enjoying trying and experimenting with new fabrics and techniques . I do however believe that it is time to move on from the stretched suiting fabric considering I have used it in the last THREE projects!! 🙂
