Spring has sprung and so has wedding season! We recently attended the wedding of one of my boyfriend’s really good childhood friends and back when we heard the news of their engagement I just knew I had another reason to create a new outfit. LOL.
Since it was going to be a backyard wedding, I knew I needed something light, not too formal, and something that said “SPRING”. So, I decided to create this two piece outfit; a crop top with high-waisted circle skirt.
I created the pattern for the top based off a cute jumper that I had. I used some stretchy lace fabric that I got a while ago from Fabrics.com and some floral fabric from Joanns. Because the fabric was so slippery and thin I decided to hand sew the two pieces together. This was my first time and while it was time consuming and very tedious, I am really happy with the results. The bottom of the top has an elastic band. The back has a zipper and a hook and eye closer at the top. I used my serger to hem the neck and arm holes.
The skirt was made with the same floral fabric from Joanns and some lining as well. It’s a basic circle skirt of which I included a waist band, a side zipper, and pockets. I did not hem the bottom of the skirt.
So here are finished looks! I wore it to the wedding and received lots of compliments. It was just right for the temperature outside and perfect for dancing the night away with our friends. <3
Oh, hey here’s me tying something out. I decided to see what the top would look like with my denim cutoffs. I think I could rock this look with no problem.
And here are some progress pics for your viewing pleasure
