spring flowers

top: J.Crew, skirt: me (fabric), shoes: Enzo Angolini, earings: gift, belt: vintage from my mom, lipstick: Lovelorn (Mac)

April showers bring May flowers, right?  We better have tons of flowers in May, because I am ready for more sunshine!  Sometimes I forget about this skirt.  Actually, I think it was one of the very first skirts that I made, almost 3 years ago.  I still love the print and the pleats.  And mustard + chambray is one of my favorite color combinations.  But you should see the backside of the hem...oohhhh honey.  It's bad.  The front is surged, the back is not.  I know it doesn't show when it's on, but the perfectionist in me wants to rip out the hem and re-do it.


On a side note, I was announced as a teacher at Sewing Summit yesterday.  So excited!


  1. I REALLY love this outfit! You look great! congrats on teaching! You will rock!!

  2. I love the skirt. The fabric makes me so excited for sunshine and warm weather.

  3. I just finished making that skirt based on your tutorial. Wearing it to my hubby's BYU graduation today. I just love it. It totally boosted my sewing confidence (esp the zipper) I may or may not have called my mom at 3am when I finished it ;) oops! but its ok. She was really proud of me

    1. That is amazing Sarah! I dropped lunch off to my husband at BYU Law school today and kept my eyes peeled for you in your skirt as I drove around campus :) If you get a chance to email me a picture of your skirt I would love to see it!
