Yesterday was a looooooooooooong day. I was up super early and wanted something easy to wear. I chose my flared denim skirt (Simplicity 5914) and my (non) Maternity Wrap Top from Megan Nielson and, of course, my white camisole refashion underneath.
I have to admit, I should probably have used a lighter weight denim or a slightly different pattern for the skirt – the hem sticks out pretty definitively and I find myself hoping it softens up after a few washings, but at any rate, it’s kind of fun. I had seen a lady at church with a flared denim skirt, buttons all the way up the front with a belt and thought it was really cute. Anyway, I didn’t pay enough attention to detail or think it all the way through or something. Does anyone else struggle with making their vision a reality? What are your roadblocks? It has definitely taught me that, in the future I will need to have more focus. When I used to sew for brides, they would bring me a picture and I would study, I mean STUDY it, find all the detail and try to understand just exactly what the bride had in mind. I would sew it mentally in my head before I even started. This is the same dedication I need to channel in the future.
So the question is, do you like the skirt? Should I pull out the top-stitching and maybe lessen the flare? I’m thinking I might, especially after seeing the picture, but I’d like your opinion – go ahead, I can take it! lol
Stay tuned for tomorrow…I got my tripod in the mail yesterday so maybe I can find a different, more fun place to take pictures!
