Yellow yellow yellow. I’ve had my eye on this beautiful golden-mustardy yellow all summer, looking for the right pieces to add to my closet. While shopping around the fabric store, I spotted a silky thin fabric in the shade that I’ve been eyeing. If I can’t find what I’m looking for in stores, why not make something myself? Easier said than done. Here’s a shot of attempt #1:
I had a high-waisted, loose skirt with a pleated fold in mind (like this one) and came pretty darn close for a first attempt. I made it way too short, the zipper is all wrong and the shape is a little too puffy for my taste. I didn’t even bother hemming it. Trial and error…I’m going to give it another shot this weekend.
With my yellow pursuit on hold a little longer, I might have made a little purchase last night. Making a skirt is one thing, but a cardigan? Maybe in a couple months…years? Baby steps. I’m iffy about Victoria Secret clothing…anyone have any reviews on the quality/fit? I’m excited for this one to arrive next week!
