I am entering my first… sewalong? sewing-fever? thematic-communal-inspirational-fiesta? Anyhoo, would be the first of any of these, whatever this is. Sophie from Ada Spragg is hosting a Two-Piece-Set-Acular fiesta! I grabbed a button and everything 🙂
She as put together very fashion designery silhouettes to inspire people to sew one of those matchy-matchy outfits, where you have a bottom and a top that match, like a dress or a suit, but not really. She explains better, hop there to see it.
I have been with one of these in mind ever since I saw Geneva’s cropped top and skirt set. And then I bought 1 metre of two matchy-matchy black and white prints on sale each…
The prints are from Tecidos de Coimbra, 5€/m medium-weight cotton from their Spring sale. The skirt pattern is from the latest Burda magazine 08/2014 – full of summer goodness, BTW, I already ear-dogged half of it. As soon as burdastyle.com gets on with the full collection I’ll link it here. The top is on the queue for sometime now, but I am still not sure if it will be the best match for the style of the skirt – it is Burda’s Princess Seam Boatneck Top 02/2014 #104. The pattern set has several things in its favor already: both allow for some print matching, both are easy-sew and easy-wearing pieces, and both have the magazine’s step-by-step instructions!
