Driving past the Anthropologie store two weeks ago, something caught my eye. But when I stopped two days later to investigate, I could not find it. Was I hallucinating? In the window there had appeared to be a patchwork skirt in plaids, quite cute and whimsical. I've picked up some thrifted clothing to try to recreate one. If only I had stopped when I saw it, I would have a better model than the "vision" in my memory. I'll be winging it.
I'd like to make this top, and think I can do it by tweaking view 1 of the pattern shown just below it; widening the front and adding pin tucks. And scooping the neck instead of making the collar band.
This pattern has been on my mind. I think the shoulder and sleeves would be great in contrasting fabric. I'm all into easy-to-wear clothing for the office.
Then 2, or more, plain A-line skirts. Basic necessary provisions for work.
I'm not completely slacking, though. I've been working on this. (details coming up soon)
Time to dust off my sewing machine....
