This is what I will be wearing for the next few days. Made of my own hand (well, partially) ...
Monday was a no work day so I wore a white top cut from the same Simplicity pattern as the green top I wore on Friday. The original sport shirt that this was cut from had some black detailing, which I couldn't avoid. I incorporated that into the neck trim. I also took it in a smidge because the green one is a little loose. It worked.
Tuesday I'm expecting a long day at the office so I'm wearing a simple, fuss-free dress that I made earlier this summer. Considering the weather is going into the mid 80's, this will work for me.
Wednesday, another warm day, another light dress.
Thursday, here's one you haven't seen before! I've always wanted a skirt from this material. It's that summer-at-the-club stuff, blue and white striped seersucker-like cotton. I found it in a button-front skirt that was too long so I did a refashion.
Using an older pattern as the base, I omitted the waistband and cut it lower so that it's more of a hip-hugger fashion. Instead of making facings, I put a small band on the edge, then stitched up most of the front. Only the top three buttons work, eliminating the need for a zipper. And there's a small unstitched section at the bottom, creating a flap. This white (secondhand) blouse will complete the outfit.
Next listing will be on Friday. That means I've got some stitching to do :)
