April Project

For April I thought I would try something simple, a top. My inspiration came from this outfit. I love the  combination. I saw this outfit on Kristy's blog, Lower Your Presser Foot. I thought it was gorgeous.
love everything about this outfit! - printed pencil skirt, white tee, blue jean jacket & heels
However I want to do the reverse. I want to have the animal print as a top and a dark denim skirt with maybe a white jacket or even a lighter denim jacket.

I think I will make Vogue 8977 View A in a fabric I just bought from Tessuti's

I really like the caramel colour in this fabric. It has a slight stretch so I think it will work quite well.
Hopefully I will have plenty of time although my eldest son has leave for a week, which I am so excited about. I haven't seen him since January and my other son is living with me at the moment so having 2 children out of 3 in the same country and the same house will be bliss.
Happy sewing!
