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.
