I had a wedding to go to today, and the reception was going to be outside. It was supposed to be a humid, 90 degree day, so I knew I needed something cool. It ended up storming on us, and I left the wedding reception a bit early with my son. Not a fan of being outside in a windy thunderstorm. I am bummed that I didn’t get a longer time to speak to my family, though. 🙁
The outfit I made was a tank top and skirt. Both were self-drafted. The tank is a jersey knit with a purchased applique to dress it up.
The skirt was a sort of a copy of Balmain skirt. I used a bottom-weight brushed cotton with lycra. It was a designer brand, but I forgot who it was. I have enough for a pair of capris, so I am going to make more with this very nice fabric.
I am not completely happy with the underside of the overlap, since it was a little loose. It is attached at the waist, but not at the side. I think it might need to go all the way over to the side. I just stitched it down. I didn’t really have the right kind of snaps to put them down the front.
