There is NOTHING like a good dose of inspiration.
I haven't had time to just sit and look at all the pictures on read my fashion blogs, but I took a lazy day and did just that. Boy was I glad.
I'm currently on a "winter white" kick (even though it's not actually winter yet) and this outfit was PERFECT.
Metallic anything is so hot right now and I've had this fabric that has literally been calling my name. I HAD to go ahead and sew it up.
I loved this entire look, so I decided to recreate it.
Donna Karan Metallic Pull-On Skirt on SALE for $547.00
I didn't want a jacket so I decided to make this loose fitting wrap top. I had a suede like fabric in my stash and knew it would be perfect.
This gold skirt is seriously all in your face, look at me now.
I decided on these little booties that I picked up way earlier in the summer. I couldn't wait to wear them. I'm LOVING booties right now. I actually forgot I had this clutch and ran across it looking for another bag. SCORE!
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: XS-M I made the Medium
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are ok until you get to the collar/neck. It may have been me but it confused me. I ended up putting them down and doing it my own way.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the style of this pattern, I didn't like the instructions for the collar/neckline.
Fabric Used: A lightweight suide like fabric from my stash.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I doubt if I make this again. I do recommend it but be careful with the collar/neckline instructions. They confused me.
Conclusion: Pretty nice pattern, helped me achieve the look I was going for.
