Simplicity 2474 and Magic Pencil Modeled

Here I am after work, wearing my new top and skirt.

Note to self: Stand away from the lamp so it doesn't
look like a tumor growing out of my hip.

But I actually kept this black cardi on most of the day as the office runs cool.


The top definitely passed the wearability test and with just using 28" of fabric plus 1/2 pack of binding, I can see a few more of these in my future. Even from Joann's Polly & Esther collection. ;-)

I love it with the cardi too. Such a classic little look!

It's a great work look! You definitely should make more.

You're looking good girl-very professionally turned out in your cardi suit. Love the Polly and Esther remark. I made a muslin of a tank out of some of the nastiest stuff that ever lived meaning to toss it yet have worn it to death as a layering piece. Biggest reason is it doesn't wrinkle and is indestructible in the wash and the colors are forever the same. In fact I want to hunt some more Polly and Esther prints for winter wear.

Great little combo. Love anything that layers.

That outfit looks fabulous, as do you, Debbie.

Karin said...

This looks better on you than the dress form! It looks great with the cardi too.

Carolyn said...

Great combo! As for Polly and Esther, it is really a shame that Joann's is almost the only go to fabric store in the Tampa Bay area.

The whole outfit looks so good. I love the purple skirt. Wow, I just realized that I DO like purple....but never wear it????

This outfit looks great! Had a little chuckle about the lamp... at least it's not right over the top of your head LOL.

I like the way the purple skirt brought out the purple accents in the top. Great outfit! I have the magic skirt pattern, and I need to try it out.

I have been reading your blog for years (long time reader, first time commenter) and, woman, I gotta say... your new life must really agree with you. You look happy, gorgeous and chic lately. I didn't add "smart" cuz we all already know you're witty, resourceful AND intelligent.

Good for you!

You look fabulous, with and without the cardi :-).
