Here! There! and Everywhere!
Current state of the Seersucker:
Its made out of all the scrappy bits I had left over from a previous project. However -- for all that I like it better in this picture than in person, I'm not particularly happy with it as is. This is in large part due to the fact that I like defined waists -- happily, I have enough scrappy bits left to do a second row of the little triangles, and since from the bust line down its more or less just pinned in place, I figured I would make it up, pin it in place and see how that looks. (Odds are good I will end up with the double row in the final) I'm also not sold on plain shoulder straps, so, maybe scrappy triangles there too....
Yesterday, tuxedo jeans and RTW top, (Its getting a bit dull photographing them over and over) and today, MM skirt with RTW top and cardigan.
The skirt is basically a drindle with a bit of a yolk and a ruffle at the bottom. As it is made of cotton gauze, its lined with another layer (although that one is cream) as I prefer not to be totally transparent when I go out into the sun. The skirt is actually a refashion of my own work, as originally it was about ankle length. The real problem? "about" ankle length -- it was about one or two inches above, which just looked like it was too small for me. (Being 5'9" its easy for things to look like I got the wrong size, even if I meant it that way) so, shortened it up to a bit below my knees, and frolicked away.
