HI DARLINGS! We are in Philadelphia and freezing our asses off, LOL! These pics are making me wish I was back in LA but we are doing something awesome here so I can’t complain. We will be home soon enough and then back to the grind, we have so much going on this year and a wedding to finish planning. How’s the start of the year treating ya’ll?


OUTFIT AND PATTERN DETAILS

PATTERN: This is an OOP so I apologize, it’s DKNY VOGUE 1487 pattern. I knew when I bought this fabric that I was going to make this skirt so I went into my files and pulled it out. Its actually a really easy pattern to sew up and even with the chevron matching it came together quickly. I even got a perfect match at the center back zipper.

FABRIC: This is a beautifully striped lame that is a pain in the ass to work with so I wrote a few tips below should you ever try your hand at sewing with it. I bought this beauty at MOOD FABRICS (couldn’t find it online)

SWEATER: This CROPPED SWEATER is from TOPSHOP. I tried to find it but it wasn’t online.

ACCESSORIES: My earrings are from H&M, my sunglasses are MICHAEL KORS and my pin which everyone always asks me about is from JOANN. The bracelet is so old I don’t remember where it’s from.

SHOES: These are my barely there CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN heels.


TIPS FOR WORKING WITH LAME

  • Cut your pieces with a rotary cutter the sharper the cut the less initial fraying you are going to get.
  • Serge all your pieces before you start sewing them together this will keep your fabric from becoming a pile of threads because this frays fast.
  • Do not press with your iron directly on the fabric! I used my scrap of organza for my pressing and I use a very light touch.
  • Be careful when handling, this will snag so be aware of pins and scissors near you. I got it snagged on my ring and had to recut that piece.
  • Fully line your garment.
