Close to a month ago Melissa and I drove around our town in search of some cool walls. It sounds so funny saying that out loud to friends, but that's exactly what we did. We both had completed garments to photograph and wanted fresh new backgrounds for our photos. I spotted this crazy purple wall at a local laundromat and it works perfectly with my skirt.
First let's talk about the top, the Briar pattern. There are a few different options for sewing (long sleeve, short sleeve, cropped, full length, pocket, different neckband finishes), but for every version I've made a short sleeve full length top. And I've made four because I'm addicted. This is such a quick sew and perfect for those of you that want to venture into sewing with knits. I'm one of those people that is really slow when it comes to sewing and I can cut, sew, and finish this top in under two hours.
Th skirt is the Cascade pattern, also by Megan Nielsen. This is another beginner friendly pattern and I learned a new skill while sewing it. Well, I used my narrow hem foot for the first time to finish the edges of the skirt... and it didn't work out so well. The fabric kept unrolling out of the foot and it was super annoying. Does anyone have a magical technique they use to get the perfect narrow hem?
So. In this post we have a mullet top and a mullet skirt, so I thought I would share a photo of me from nine years ago when I had a fashion mullet. You can go ahead and laugh with me!
