Rouched skirt, boxy jacket.

The good thing about knowing how to sew and design is the ability to whip something up when you have one of those ‘full wardrobe and nothing to wear’ moments. My blogging and designing mojo’s been a bit low lately, so forgive me for the lack of posts during the past week. It wasn’t until the beginning of last week when I needed something to wear that I started this jacket and skirt ensemble and once I started, nothing could stop it, all I could think about was how to do this hem or how to finish that seam to make it fit better et cetera et cetera! This is the first jacket I made and it in fact is actually a mock up! But since it turned out quite nice I thought why not?
This is a skirt I’ve always wanted to make but never got around to because I thought the combination of the fabrics and rouching wouldn’t be very flattering, but after a few different tweeks and help from my lovely VET teacher I was(gladly) proven wrong!
