Wearing what I make

Most everyone likes to see sewn garments when you are wearing it; I know I do.

I decided to wear my new top and skirt to work yesterday. I had to attend an executive committee meeting with our board of directors. I thought this was appropriate for wearing all day and for early evening meeting. I was right!

This is a great knit fabric, soft but with some body to it. It truly passed the wearability factor. One added touch I did to the top was to tack down the back of the collar to the back neck seam. This kept the back collar in place better, aiding the drape of the cowl neck collar.

Here are a couple more views


The top will work with several skirts that I have in the closet, as well as with some pants! I see a few more of these tops in my future.

  1. Linda - I just couldn't work the two pieces out together in my mind when they were hanging on the hanger...however, on you this is stunning! Love how the print on the top and skirt work together so well that at first I thought it was a dress!

  5. Your outfit looks fabulous. It's such a great idea to have a top and a skirt that look like a dress when worn together but can also be worn separately with so many other things.

  8. Your "dress" looks great. And both pieces will be fun to wear as seperates.
