Autumn Outfit »Lucy«

I found this lovely outfit on Pinterest. It’s Lucy Laucht wearing a silk skirt with a cropped shirt.
Lucy Laucht Silk Skirt

This kind of skirt would be the perfect use for a silk-like fabric I had in my stash. It wasn’t much but maybe just enough to do this simple skirt.

I drafted the pattern myself. I didn’t do the pockets because the fabric is a bit transparent and I hadn’t much fabric anyway. It has an elastic waistband and a baby hem with rounded corners.

My cropped shirt is more a hi-low or mullet shirt. It’s slightly longer than Lucy’s shirt because I want to wear it with pants too. I drafted the pattern using a shirt from my closet. I just had to change the hem. It only consists of two pieces. The sleeves are “built in”.

You see, this time no jersey dress 🙂 Well, a jersey  shirt … next on my list is a jeans skirt. It will be my version of the famous distressed jeans skirt from ACNE. Stay tuned …

BurdaStyle featured my Swimming Pool Dress and my Backtote recently. The Backtote made it to the “Best of october” gallery! Thank you BurdaStyle!
