This is what I wore for Mother's Day, and I'm just now getting around to posting it.
I made my usual alteration which is a full seat. I didn't need to lengthen it because it's drafted to be a midi length. I sewed and topstitched just as a would had the fabric been actual denim.
I love adding separates to my wardrobe. I can't say that enough. I wear the clothes that I sew. This ain't for "show". I'm not here to entertain you. This is real life and my real wardrobe. That's why I love these 2 pieces.
This top is McCall's 8217. And my fabric is Stella Trans Lurex Knit in Sky Allure from Zelouf Fabrics.com.
This is such a cute top that is so easy to sew straight out of the envelope... no alterations necessary for me. And this beautiful knit fabric, gave it the perfect amount of razzle and dazzle! It's pretty sheer, but a nude bra underneath was the perfect coverage. And the fabric was really easy to sew. But hey, everything is easy to sew on my beautiful Janome Memory Craft 15000 while using my walking foot!
My skirt is McCall's 8149. And my fabric is Anning Space Dye Suiting in Denim from Zelouf Fabrics.com. This fabric looks like denim, but it's not. It's 70% poly, 28% rayon and 2% spandex.
I love this skirt and I've already worn it out into the wild twice since I mad it. I can't wait to rotate it right into fall with boots!
