Spring is in the air!

Greetings! Today’s look is a skirt and top by Vogue #V1486.

Sewing skills: Intermediate level for the skirt. Tip ⇒ pressing is your friend.

When selecting fabric, I like what I like and make it work (Tim Gunn voice), for instance this skirt was constructed from Waverly Home Decor fabric (wait, wasn’t that just a Project Runway twist, making fashions from different types of fabric?) In addition the top was made on the reverse side of satin fabric. Yellow is one of my favorite colors.

Denim on denim kind of day!

Denim styles come and denim styles go and like most you hold on to your denim. So you have all this denim hanging in your closet, the great thing about this new denim trend, you can wear it all together. Combine your denim jackets, shirts, and jeans, for a great denim look. Remember those 80’s denim dresses, grab it and combine it with jeans as I’ve done here. Don’t be afraid to jump on the denim crave.
