The "40 Yard {Slap}Dash" Ensemble

    Newer Older

    The Facts
    Fabric | Navy Stretch Rayon Jersey :: $4.98 a yard :: less than one yard used. Rayon Challis in Speckled Red $1.98 a yard :: It was very wide so, I was able to use a yard or so for the skirt.
    Patterns | Vivat Veritas Scallop Waist skirt, which is well on its way to becoming my TNT non-pencil skirt pattern. Steph's AMAZING 40s inspired Blank Tee hack.
    Year | Current.
    Notions | Thread, a zip, a bit of interfacing.
    Time to complete | Three or four hours?? There was MUCH forcing into submission after the fact, with regard to the shirt. I was so completely distracted, a mosquito feasted on my right arm while I was pinning and top stitching like a fiend. The skirt practically made itself.
    First worn | I kept the shirt on all day. I only wore the skirt at home, it's a bit rainy here for bare legs, flippy skirts and sandals.
    Wear again? | Yes, I put the shirt on after I finished browbeating it and I wore it with jeans to pick up my kiddies from school. It's so cute and a nice break from the regular tee. If the summer ever arrives, I expect this skirt (and the 3 I have planned with my remaining rayon challis) to be worn quite a lot.
    Total price | I guess we'll call it $6? Less than $10, to be sure.
