Outfit: Batik Skirt Remix

Friends, I had a feeling you all were interested in independent pattern designers but the stats proved it! It’s intriguing to see which topics drive the most traffic and yesterday’s brought in a whole slew of new readers. Welcome and I hope that I can keep your attention now that you’re here!

Gail, from Today’s Agenda, asked me this week how much wear my challenge garments are getting so I thought that I’d continue posting pictures of my outfits. I’ve been wearing a similar getup to the one above but pairing my batik skirt with my black sorbetto and a black sweater. I’m actually more fond of that ensemble but in an attempt to continue mixing prints I thought I’d try it with this Marimekko shirt that purchased on a trip to Finland eight years ago (!!). How this shirt is not threadbare and misshapen, I’ll never know.

I’m always excited to see how other sewists incorporate handmade garments into their wardrobe. The goal for this blog has always been to build an effortless wardrobe and sew pieces that work with my other garments not against them. I’m hoping that these outfit posts will show you how I’m remixing previously made pieces to create new and exciting outfits. If there’s something you’d like to see in regards to outfit posts, please let me know.
