DIY Pleated Midi Skirt and Crop Top.

Growing up, I was not only the only girl, but one of very few females in my generation.  Quite naturally, I grew up as a major tomboy.  As I got older (post college), I began embracing my feminine side.  Through out these years, I never really could fully embrace wearing skirt and dresses.  To be honest I really don't think they fit me well or look very flattering.

 My wardrobe is filled with countless jumpsuits and separates.  I literally own close to 100 pairs of jeans!  So for my 2015 challenge, I will attempt to create a skirt/dress garment at least once a month. Starting with this month's post!















I drafted this Midi skirt with Fabric Mart Fabric's lightweight Jacquard fabric.  The fabric was on special a couple weeks ago and is now sold out.  Check these amazing options that would look great as well (HERE) and (HERE).  

The most fabulous part about this fabric is in the fact either side could be used.  I opted for the light side and the darker side for my waist band.   This fabric sewed beautifully!

For my crop top, I used V8815 without the peplum and the fabric is a Poly/Rayon blend that can be found (HERE).  This material is more suitable for suiting (obviously), but I wanted to use it to create this crop top for the purposes of it being light and airy.  I can wear this top under a coat or heavy jacket without the risk of sweating.   I can also wear this top into the spring without worry.

My Clutch was a simple DIY with hair on calf skin and Crocodile embossed leather.

                                

My shoes are Giuseppe Zanotti Klien blue platform pumps that can be found (HERE)

I created a YT tutorial that can be found (HERE).  I hope you like :)

Happy Sewing!
