Zinnia Skirt and Eucalypt Tank

Spring! Spring! It's sunny (sometimes) and warm(ish) and breezy (borderline gale-force) and time for skirts and tank tops (on certain days).

I'm pretty excited about my newest sewn garments: Colette Patterns' Zinnia Skirt, and Megan Neilsen's Eucalypt Tank. They're perfectly springy on their own and together. 

My husband kept complimenting me on the top, saying that I should sew more Eucalypts because they're very flattering. I agree.  I chose this floral patterned voile from Leah Duncan's Morning Walk line for my Eucalypt. It's so perfect. 

I paired the Eucalypt with my newly sewn Zinnia skirt (v. 3) which was made from a beautifully lined fabric I picked up at Finch Sewing Studio.  I cut the waistline a little bit larger on the Zinnia so that it sits a bit lower on my waist.

I wore this outfit to a lunch date with my husband this weekend, and then awkwardly posed along the W&OD bike trail while he snapped my picture.

  1. Hi Alicia! Lovely Eucalypt!

    I'm about to cut one out. Did you decide on the size based on your actual body measurements? I'm wondering because I'm a tad larger in the bust than the XL measurements. The pattern description says "relaxed fit". Hemmm... Do you have any thoughts on this? Thank you!
