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.
