My favorite thing that I did this weekend was enclose the porch of our house. I'm looking for a classier way to describe the mosquito netting curtain that makes my porch look like it's screened in. I've been dreaming of this before I ever discovered there was a company that produced them. All in a quest to relive my childhood where, during the summer, the porch became an extension of the living room. My dream has come true. As soon as the morning weather is warmer than 65 degrees, I'm having breakfast out there...in my pajamas.
My second favorite thing I did this weekend was this skirt. Vogue 8424
I've been looking for an A-line skirt that I feel flatters my figure and this one is it. Plan on seeing more of these. I bought the pattern for a fall/winter fabric. Then, when I was looking for skirt patterns a la Boden I thought this one might work (love the big pockets). Once it was done I couldn't believe how much I liked it. It just feels good to wear. Hope I can figure out an equally flattering top to go with it. Any ideas (t-shirt, tank top, cotton blouse)? I'm completely lost when it comes to putting together the rest of the outfit so if you have a suggestion, please leave a comment.
The least favorite thing I did this weekend was this "thing". (The bad pictures reflect how I felt about it!)
I know it looks like a skirt but it is the most ill-fitting, unflattering skirt I've made in a long, long time. Equally aggravating is the fact that once I discovered what I think was my mistake, my correction didn't fix it. I was hoping to get a cute little sailor-inspired white skirt out of this but...the zipper's out and the fabric's gone! Buh, bye. I think this project deserves it's own individual post so that's all I'm going to say about it for now.
