Striped tee with embroidered skirt

Shirt: sewn by me (spring 2014)
Skirt: eShakti (winter 2014)
Shoes: Earth Origins, at DSW (spring 2014)
Earrings: Torrid (summer 2012)
Necklace: Fashion Bug (summer 2012)

I’ve completed another sewing project! Long-time readers may recognize the shirt fabric from a maxi skirt I made when I was just learning how to sew. I liked the skirt, but it was a little bulky in the waist, and I decided I wanted a blue and white striped tee more than I wanted it in a skirt. I also felt ready to graduate to sewing a new project, and this project, based on a super simple tutorial was quick and easy. I made the shirt on Friday night, wore it with denim capris on Saturday, and then Tuesday with this skirt, which is becoming one of my favorites.

Red necklace and cherry earrings

Something about blue and white stripes makes me want to pair with red things, so I grabbed this chunky necklace and tiny cherry earrings. (Confidentially, between you and me, I think these earrings kinda look like scrotums. Just me?)

Black sandals

Again with the new comfortable shoes! I’m tempted to find these in other colors so I’d be able to wear a pair every day.

  1. Thanks! I’m having a lot of fun with knit jersey fabric lately, even though it can be a little futzy. Eventually I’ll move on to something with darts and shaping, but right now it’s all stretch.
