Today's outfit is entirely new, created thismorning whilst still in my pj's. I got the lovely yellow striped jersey as a remnant from StoneMountain & Daughter, and I still have a bunch left to make more stuff with. And I also took pictures as I was making the shirt which I will turn into a how-to-make-a-t-shirt-photo-tutorial in the next few days.
The skirt has been nudging the top of my to-do list since I found about 2 or more yards of it in a thrift store last year. I think this is probably my favorite vintage fabric I have ever found, and it has been turned into my new favorite skirt. All I did was cut off about 10 inches on the top of the fabric, turned the pinked edge over and secured it with a zig-zag stitch, folded that over about 1 1/4 inches and sewed it close to the edge, then threaded elastic into the channel, sewed the ends together, and closed off the hole. I didn't even bother hemming the bottom edge since it was finished so nicely.
I am not sure what this fabric was meant to be in its previous life. Perhaps curtains, or a dust ruffle for a bed, or maybe even a skirt panel. All I know is that this is my best outfit yet, and I am totally geared up to try something harder now, like some clothes that are fitted.
