I mentioned that I bought a whole bolt of chambray? I don't want to ruin the suspense... but I've made a lot of things out of chambray lately, more to come. These pieces are two of the most versatile and easy to wear.
The top is the same pattern as my shift dress but cropped to the waist and with back waist darts. I used the same treatment for the scooped back with the rouleau strip to hold it on my shoulders. I used the wrong side of the fabric for contrast trim. I love this top with... ok, lots of things! But I wear it very often with my high-waisted skinny black jeans and a white or red belt.
The skirt is another Felicity skirt. I also added some contrast with the wrong side of the fabric in the waist band. This skirt! I just wear it all the time with all kinds of tops. It's an easy piece to mix.
I guess that's about all I have to say. Pardon the wrinkles -- I'd been biking all day. Thanks for reading!
