I decided to go into a sewing project. I am desparately trying to get rid of this lightweight crazy tribal knit fabric. I thought I would try this Donna Karan pattern from Vogue. I liked the skirt. The top may be a bit too crazy (and running out of fabric thank goodness!)
This is the crazy fabric that I made a halter dress (which I love), read about it here. Which I promise you keeps multiplying.
I decided with this pattern I can't do any sort of matching, I don't care. I just ran with it- it was one piece of fabric that you gather and connect leaving the overlapping edges raw. It was slightly tricky to get the sewing done on the machine. I didn't add the elastic but after taking pictures with it I realized I need elastic. It is an easy fix. The line gives me a headache when wearing it and I have to fidget to get it right. Overall I like the skirt. It is easy to wear and this would be a great item to throw on with my bathing suit in the summer.
Trying it out with something else. I did not add a piece of elastic to the waist. Now I will.
