In my last post I showed this very nice piece of animal print fabric I found at JoAnn Fabrics.
It was love at first sight! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a fellow PR member reviewed a top using the very same material...and I knew someone else fell in love too! (Sorry, I can't remember who it was so I can't find it again to show you!)
I decided to make a skirt I saw on a magazine cover that inspired me. Although this one appeared to be made of chiffon, I wanted to make something similar using this beautiful knit. It wasn't the chiffon on this skirt I was attracted to nor the flounce at the bottom, it was the ruffle down the front of one side that caught my eye.
So I decided to create a skirt using pieces from multiple patterns. Seemed simple enough...and it was!
See what you can do with a little imagination and a lot of luck!!! :) Took me about three hours to make! I really love the finished project! The chocolate brown sweater was made using the DKNY Dress Vogue pattern 1179. It makes a great top too!
I didn't make the top to go with this skirt, they were just completed one after the other and matched nicely!
Now I must fulfill a promise from my last post. Some of you wanted me to post a photo of myself in the Vogue pattern 1179, my turquoise polka dot dress (same pattern as top above) I think this dress is so stylish, comfortable and forgiving! Here's the photo...
I have so much to work on, so it's back to the sewing room for me. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Sewing!
