Ok, I don’t know how I fit into the sewing world. I’m not a fashionista, a trend setter or even particularly creative, I don’t care for the current styles and I don’t follow the crowd. but I do love to sew!!
I’ve been working on an outfit to wear to an outside wedding. I’m really stepping outside myself on this outfit, because I usually like stuff that is dark in color and a tad too big. Yes! I tend to try and hide in my clothes so no one will see me. lol
I’m made New Look 6843 (the red skirt). A basic “A” line. I had to lengthen it about 7 1/2″. No other alterations were necessary.
This is the fabric I used.
I am currently making a trench coat to go with this skirt. Trench coats are probably supposed to be outer wear, but not this one 🙂
I’m making this in a white linen look fabric. My fashionista SIL says I should put big black buttons on it and wear the outfit with black shoes.
