A Summer Set

This outfit was completed and worn last Summer, so I am back to playing catch up on the blog.  But somehow my projects never seem quite finished until they are posted, so it feels good to finally share them here.

This particular outfit has been on my mind recently because I knit up a sweater that is a perfect match for the skirt.  

Hooray for separates that play well with others!

I have paired this particular combination of bustier and skirt with a cardigan to make it work appropriate, which also creates a slightly different look.

And I definitely love pieces that have range!

Overall, I am very pleased with this outfit.

The skirt certainly gets more wear than the top, but like my other bustier/skirt set, I really love how the finished look turned out.

Do I need a third combo in my closet?  Perhaps not.

But I suspect that this skirt pattern is going to come in handy in the future.  The silhouette is lovely, and it certainly isn't the fabric hog that a circle skirt is, which is always appreciated!

Bustier:  Made by me, Simplicity 1426
Skirt:  Made by me, Simplicity 8458
Shoes:  Remix "Babydoll"

  1. The 'doo: kicky! You an old yellow Miata away from capturing the quirkiness that resides deep within you.

    The entire outfit quips off-handedly that you are about to embark on a trip to Dharma Trading (it's the earrings as much as the attitude).

    Efficiency experts of old sought to find the bright elusive butterfly of productivity - you eluded them well.

    Like everyone else who visits here, we very much enjoy what you share. On behalf of all, we are thankful for all you do Laura Mae!
