This top was meant to be a muslin a few years ago. It is just rust cotton bastite. But when I was done, I thought it looked pretty good. Comes out of the dryer without a wrinkle. So, my muslin became my top.
The skirt I have made twice already. I had to retire one of them, as the colored denim just faded too unattractively, and it may have shrank. This skirt, also a stretch denim, (with a looser waistband) in what looks like a raised animal print, was to replace the retired skirt. I really like it.
Sorry for the photos, DH had already left for work. (geeze, and I didn't even make the bed first!)
So second day in, and MMM has already changed the way I think about dressing in the morning. I was running behind and threw on some jeans. Then remembered! I have to take a picture! I can't be lazy and just wear these RTW jeans, it is ONLY day 2!!!! So off came the jeans. This skirt (which I had not worn yet) begged to be shown off today. I picked the top based solely on the color and that it covered the waist. Didn't dawn on me that they were from the same pattern, years apart. They paired well, I think!
and if you can't sew
Enjoy doing what you can do!
