Pastels and Watercolors

I often get stuck in a rut with my self-made clothing. 

While making a garment, I have plenty of time to think about how I am going to style the finished product.  That first outfit gets etched in my subconscious, and every time I go to pull it out of the closet, I envision it exactly as it was previously worn. 

Which is terribly boring!

So for a fun exercise, I thought I would pair two previously worn separates (Simplicity 4047 & Simplicity 1997) to create a brand new outfit.

Because what good are all those blouses I made last year if they do not get to take a turn about the room!

Blouse:  Made by me, Simplicity 4047
Skirt:  Made by me, Simplicity 1997
Shoes:  Colin Stuart
Earrings:  Liz Palacios


  1. Gorgeous! Apart from your dressmaking skills I also have location envy, it's always so sunny in your photos!

  2. Lovely, as always. You have such a grace and class around you! The outfit is perfect, looking like the pieces were made for one another specifically. I love reading about you and your sewing!

  3. How immensely lovely! I really like the length and waistband on this sweet, beautiful skirt.
