Current DIY project

Anyone who truly knows me would know that I have always been obsessed fashion and lifestyles from way back when. *Think 40's-70's*  And while I mostly favor dresses over any article of clothing I have to say that I've been particularly obsessed with crop-top and skirt/shorts sets.

I made a full tea-length circle skirt some months ago and had a bunch of leftover fabric that I didn't know what to do with. So I made some bows... which of course didn't use up much fabric so I decided rather than waste it I'll just let it sit until I can find something to do with it all. Months went by and the sun came out making it feel just like summer! The idea came and hit me like a ton of bricks- I'll make a matching crop top! At the moment the skirt is just waaay too long for this weather so I'll have to hem it about 5-10 inches. Shouldn't take long, and I won't cut it so that when it gets cold again I can just take the hem out and voila! Perfect tea length circle skirt!

So that's it! There's my little preview. I won't spoil the whole thing, so I'll make it a separate post when everything is finished to show you the whole outfit! I'm so excited to get this project completed!

  1. This looks lovely already! Great idea to sew over the bra. I can't wait to see how it turns out! :)
