Hi.

I like to make things.

Truth: I like twirly skirts. 

And the Colette Patterns Zinna Skirt is a twirly skirt.

Sometimes it's hard for me to reach for a more basic, neutral fabric when sewing. I mean, if you're looking at cute little stars or cat faces or clouds, how can you go with a boring solid??

But I'm getting better at it. Which is good, because the neutral things are really the ones you wear all the time. I mean, you DO need something to wear with those stars and cat faces and clouds. This texture waffle-ish woven fabric fits the bill perfectly.

I love this skirt, and find myself reaching for it all the time. I want to make a few more - maybe out of some of the luscious [yes luscious] new chambrays we just got in at Sew LA.

The slouchy tee is my own pattern made from this drapey knit from Girl Charlee. Just a heads up though, the cut I got was knitted really off grain, so because of how I had to fold it a lot was wasted. But it was quite inexpensive, and I love the color and the print!
