It is bound to be an exciting Season!
The challenge for Week 1 is to create a remix using the lovely ‘It’s Okay to be Biased’ Skirt tutorial by the Season 1 Winner, Katy of No Big Dill.
I do not plan on sewing along every week, but this particular challenged inspired me.
Using scrap denim and linen pieces I had lying around, I made the bodice pattern and added bias flutter sleeves, a pocket which I hand distressed with a pumice stone, and an exposed lace zipper along the back.
Part of the reason I loved this challenge so much was because it calls for imperfection. You see, I am not a ‘perfect’ sewist. Anything that calls for perfection basically drives me nuts. I like to wing it, sew as I go, and make adjustments as needed.
There is something to be seen in the natural beauty of the frayed edges, the mismatched ruffles and bias strips, that I just love how this top came out.
Deciding what to pair with it is another story. Considering I had used such a strong fabric for the top, I wanted to do something fun and whimsical for the bottom. Which is how I landed on the polka dots.
I mean really, who doesn’t love a good polka dot.
I used my same Perfect Fit High Waist Pants tutorial found HERE, and turned them into skinny pants. She can still run and be as active as she wants in them, and they are super cute!
But what do I love the most about this outfit???
The fact that I am not being judged on it. HA!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
