#MEMADEMAY2019: DAY 20/31

6 July 2019

Unfortunately, these pictures don't really do this outfit any justice IMHO.

The top/light jacket (if you can call it that) and the skirt are both memade, so you can imagine my joy at wearing more than one memade item in an outfit.

The top is made from African wax print (Ankara) and I did some flat piping on the front yoke and used double fold piping around the neck and front edge.

It was a quick and easy make, just something to throw on over tops. Dolman sleeve sleeves typically are, as I've made one before and blogged about it as well.

The skirt is a whole other story, I made it during the memade challenge itself, which the creators caution that that isn't what the challenge is about.

But, I wore my yellow pencil skirt and was reminded of how easy and quick that was to make, then, also, I wanted more days like this, where I get to wear more that one item of memade in an outfit.

I also really loved the quilted look of the fabric, sadly, all they had left was what I bought and it wasn't much.

I also bought a black and animal print fabric to make more of these midi length pencil skirt, which I'm really enjoying.
