I made this outfit for the Vegan Oktober fest this past weekend and it was a big hit. I got a lot of compliments on it. The skirt is dyed red, with a vintage border I got at a yard sale a couple of years ago. The skirt is made from my trusty wrap dress pattern, I just closed the front.
The skirt has a slight ruffle but I didn't dye enough fabric to make the ruffle fuller. But hey, it worked :)
I even finished it early, but realized I didn't have a blouse to wear with it, so I whipped up this white one made from, you guessed it, my trusty old wrap dress pattern. I tell you, I'll never get tired of that pattern.
Clean solid color blouse. Boy, does my wardrobe need these!
I don't know WHY I didn't pull down the back! Silly me!
The sash came out nice, too.
It fit really well and the skirt has great swing for dancing. I was afraid the cotton would be too stiff, but I think the longer length helped. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures of me in the outfit. I really, REALLY, gotta get better at that.
The event was fun, and I had a lot of beer. You can read more about it here.
It felt good to sew for myself again. It's been a while. I really want to make more blouses. I really need them. Okay, back to sewing for others now! Just boring stuff. No real Playclothes treasures until after Halloween.
I'll keep you updated!
