Spring has sprung

At least at Joann's. Tee-hee :)

I am in LOOOOOOOOOOVE with this fabric. I mean LOOOOOOOOOOVE.

Click for a HUGE closeup of this stuff :)
I wore it pulled up and belted with a black blazer. It actually falls just below my navel. I want to find a different top for this one. Something more t-shirt like.
(Sorry about the dressing room pic. We were in Kohl's looking for an Easter dress for kiddo.)

Too bad it's been chilly again, I wanted to go bare legged with strappy sandals!
(I needed a slip, it was clinging to my tights, lol)
Pattern Used: New Look 6053
The pattern was extremely simple. My only dislikes were the front darts on the waist but that's because I dont have much any waist to hip ratio. Since the skirt is shaped but not super fitted (on me) there is a lttle bit of looseness on the front below the waist and above the knee. Hope that makes sense. it's no big deal because the skirt is cute!

It's about 2 inches over the knee with a side split and invisible zip. I'm 5'6.

I didn't use an invisible zip on this one but I still think it turned out OK.
I'll prolly wear it like this or with a black button down blouse. Or with both if this weather doesn't get right :)

This is what I saw in Kohl's that I can't get off my mind.

LC Lauren Conrad Chiffon Blazer.
This was so cute, the chiffon was just the right weight. I didn't like the color so much, I want to try and emulate this in solid black, IF I can find the right fabric.

I have that same fabric! (blk and yellow roses) It's so vibrant!! Great minds think alike! Mine will be a great big flowy maxi with a white t-shirt and a yellow belt!!
