Remember a while back when I posted THIS inspiration graphic? As soon as I posted that, I set out to make it a reality. And look.. here it is!
I used Megan Nielsen’s Briar Top and Cascade Skirt patterns to create the look I was going for and LOVE how it turned out.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about myself is that I love to take risks in my wardrobe. This past weekend someone asked me who my style inspiration was and I honestly couldn’t answer them. I racked my brain and didn’t know… My style tends to be all over the place so I think I draw inspiration from a lot of different facets. This outfit isn’r really my norm, but I am obsessed with it!
Working with solids is never really fun, can I get an amen? BUT, I’ve decided that I want to make a few basics for my wardrobe and it just seemed right to make this top a solid (although a stripe would look nice too!). Girl Charlee sent me this Nude Solid Cotton Spandex Knit and I LOVE it. It is the PERFECT weight and stretch for this top and it just feels comfortable. I’ll definitely be ordering some more of it in other colors to expand my staples wardrobe. Do you like sewing with solids or am I the only one who despises it?
Do you have ONE style inspiration or do you draw from lots of different people/things/ideas?
