Pattern Mixing - Me made outfit
I made an entire outfit and attempted mixing patterns! After making a few basics, i needed a little fix. This project was the definition of pattern mixing for me - knits and woven, stripes and florals...somehow it worked out.
I made the striped turtleneck knit top using The Rowan Tee by Megan Nielsen Patterns. I used a knit fabric that had been in my stash for over a year and can no longer remember where I got it or what the actual fabric contents are.
For the skirt, I hacked the Charlotte Skirt from By Hand London into a wrap skirt! I was inspired by a photo I saw and Pinterest and made my version. I am pleased with the results. The floral fabric is from DG Patterns and it is a cotton linen which is such a great fabric content combo! It seems it is sold out at this point but you can check out the other fabrics on the site.
I chose to pair this handmade outfit with a green ready to wear jacket which paired so great with it! I am happy with how it turned out.
Now back to my goal of making some more basics for my closet.
Enjoy your day!
