An entire afternoon of sewing yielded these two pieces: the cutout shoulder blouse and a floral print skirt.
The blouse idea came to me several months ago when I started to cut and sew pieces of this great gold-flecked stretch cotton fabric; however, nothing went right with it — it wouldn’t hang correctly, and I kept sewing crookedly. Out of frustration, I threw it into my closet, disregarding it as an unfinished project. The other day, I revisited the cut pieces and finally finished it, turning it into a cropped blouse. The floral skirt took me about an hour and a half to sew. I found the fabric at a local warehouse sale at a deeply discounted price. Score!
