I Hate Sewing: Hello Summer Skirt

 photo y2_zps6ae94de2.jpg

I haven't touched a sewing machine ever since returning from a Disney Boot Camp. Thank god I finished this skirt a few weeks in prior of that trip. I just love the print and colors of this cotton fabric so much when I laid my eyes on it at the store. Looking at the yellow, white, black, grey combo and those lovely flowers make this a fun fabric for Summer outfit creation. It must be so popular because I snatched the very last yard on the roll, wooo hooo!! 

 Then the big question was "what kind of skirt I should make? ". A pencil skirt came to mind first but I didn't think I would get too much wear out of it because it seemed to "formal". The print is just so cheerful, modern and fun then I thought a full midi skirt sounded ideal. However I didnt have enough fabric to make it full. So okay let just do a pleated skirt then. So a pleated skirt it is.


 I need your girls' expert fashion tip - what kind of top would look great with this floral print skirt?

I am thinking a plain white tank top.

  1. I think a plain top would work well with nice yellow necklace? since there's a lot going on already on the skirt, I would prob go with something really simple for top. Great job on the skirt!

    I hope you had a great M day!

  2. that is a beautiful print! and you did such a great job with it. it's the perfect summer skirt!

  3. It sure looks like your sewing skills are improving with every piece you make Nelah! This looks like a fun skirt for the summer! I think a plain white or black top would look great with it!

  5. What a lovely skirt. The pattern is beautiful, perhaps a plain top in white or black so the attention will be focused on the skirt itself.

  6. love the print. thanks for sharing

  7. I would wear a plain black short sleeve scoop neck top! Nelah, the print and colors in that skirt are absolutely fabulous. It's gorgeous.

  8. I've always thought that skirt is very pretty. I dislike sewing but in actual fact, I don't know how to sew! LOL!
    I believe you can play around with the 3 colors in that skirt. A plain black, white or yellow top would match this skirt perfectly. If you wanted to venture into grey, I believe it would look good too =)
