As there is a distinct possibility that I will be interviewing for potential new jobs this summer, some interview clothes seemed like a good idea.
Hence the watercolour print linen to go with the little blue sweater I knit.(There's some foreshortening here - it's not a mini skirt, rather it hits me right above the knee cap. I seem to have angled these shots badly.) I had originally planned on making a dress, but decided on two pieces for more versatility. Plus, the top is my favourite of the moment pattern for a sleeveless top - it fits well, and looks good. The match to the sweater was just one of those lucky breaks, and I'm really happy with the outcome.
The skirt was from a pattern I drafted using the instructions in the book Sew What? Skirts! Great book - very useful.
The buttons were what I was after when I bought all that other fabric.although the buttons run all the way up the back, the top still slips on without having to unbutton them. Did I mention this is my favourite pattern right now?
