Me Made: Draped Pencil Skirt

My sister is getting married in a couple of weeks, and I'm supposed to wear a mint shirt and a navy skirt. I made the four little kids new dresses and suits, so I needed to make something really simple for me. I decided to purchase a shirt because I didn't have any mint fabric. I had some gorgeous navy knit jersey and the ladies at Teach Me Fashion asked me to review their Draped Skirt Sewing Pattern. This pattern was great because it makes a big impact with the draping, but it was a quick sew!
I really liked using this pattern. I had no troubles piecing the pattern or understanding the instructions. There were even Teach Me Fashion videos on youtube to help put it together. The only changes I made were to lengthen the skirt and shorten the casing so it was the same length as the elastic. This skirt looks great with mint, and it's drama enough for a wedding while still being comfortable and easy. I will style it differently for the wedding, but I had fun putting together this simple outfit.
I also can't wait to wear a monochromatic outfit. I've always thought about it but didn't quite have the right pieces. I love this heart sweater with the draped skirt.
I can't wait to share the wedding babies in their fancy duds, and the wedding dress that my sister and I refashioned together! It's a special story!

  1. Your skirt looks amazing. Wish I had one for the wedding I went to last week. I can't wait to see what you did for the kids, and to hear the wedding dress story. Have a fantastic day at the wedding!
