Tada! It's a camera skirt! I excitedly purchased this fabric earlier this year but then had cutting anxiety. I couldn't decide what I wanted to make from it! It's a novelty quilting cotton in a directional print so I needed a specific type of project to make it work.
I was also looking back at my old pixie photos from the beginning of summer trying to decide if I wanted to chop off my hair again already. (Answer: not yet!) And I saw my playsuit from the sew along and I knew that that's what this print wanted to be.
So there will be a matching blouse at some point in time. You know, once I decide on buttons and make bias facing, but the dirndl skirt was ready to go in time for the wedding last Saturday. I opted for a side zipper instead of a button placket because I felt the print was way too busy for that many buttons.
The colors in the skirt include some of my favorites-orange, chartreuse and mint! I went with orange and teal (close enough to mint right?) to pull the outfit together. And it was great to get to pull out my orange lippy again! Seriously, orange has become one of my favorite colors to wear.
I went for classy and quiet for accessories since I was already supporting loud colors and a loud print. I got oodles of compliments on my outfit the whole day! It made me so happy that I finally got to make something from this great print.
There's nothing quite like a new outfit to make a girl feel amazing!
