Sunny Day to All,
I committed to make a lot more separates than dresses in March and I did.... But didn't get to share them all on my blog during this month. Shame on me... I need to really focus. Sewing is my therapy and I need to let it do what it does best in my life. I wanted to make this skirt that I could wear to work. Not too sexy... not too tight... not too short.... This pattern, Simplicity 1760, was perfect. I used 2 different fabric to achieve this look. A colorful cotton fabric from Joann Fabric and a double knit black fabric that I already had in my stash. I wore it to work and got a lot of compliments. I paired it with some simple black heels and my black cardigan since it has been so cold lately. Enjoy these few pics and don't forget to say hello.
About the Pattern
Simplicity 1760 was very easy to make. It is definitely a beginners pattern. If you are looking for a sexier look, you can make it a little shorter, a little tighter with a double knit fabric and it will fit the look. I wanted to be able to wear it to work so I made it appropriate for work. I cut a size 14 and I think I could have easily took it in a little bit at the bottom but I liked the fact that it came out professional. This cut view D and loved the outcome. This corporate America girl needed some "A touch of Mémé "look for work. I could not find the pattern on the simplicity website but I found it on Amazon. If you like this look, order away or check your local Joan fabric, that's where I purchased mine. Happy Sewing to you and thanks for stopping by!!!!!
