Clearly the star here is the colorful T-shirt. I love the colors and floral motifs. These colors just make me feel happy. For my figure, I need darts even on knits for garments to fit properly. I did sew them in using the method I wrote about previously but they get lost in the print which is nice.
The skirt was a quick and simple straight skirt. I designed it with a faced waist, invisible zipper and 2 front patch pockets. I always stabilize the zipper area prior to installing the zipper. Here I used strips of fusible tricot knit interfacing.
The inspiration for the pocket design came from an old pair of ready-to-wear pants:
Since I wanted to give the skirt a sporty feel, I used topstitching thread, faux flat fell seams and topstitched the hem:
This T-shirt and skirt are very comfortable and perfect for warm summer days.
You look terrific in those colours. I enjoy your posts!ReplyDelete

Thank you Kyle! I actually think it was good I didn't finish this for MPB day. Lynn had worn pieces where the colors were just about the same!Delete
I like the entire ensemble on you!ReplyDelete
Thank you Vanessa!Delete
Both pieces are really beautiful! I really like the details on the skirt. Thank you for the clear photographs. You looked great in your leggings on MPB day.ReplyDelete
Thank you Anna! I need to make (when I have time - ha) more long tops that the leggings can go with.Delete
What a lovely outfit and adorable colours. Looks great on you :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Dawn.Delete
You're very creative. Those are very interesting pockets.ReplyDelete
I can't take the credit for those pockets since they are a knock-off from the ready-to-wear pants but thank you! I am happy with how they turned out.Delete
